1. All dogs can be traced back 40 million years ago to a
weasel-like animal called the Miacis which dwelled in trees and dens. The
Miacis later evolved into the Tomarctus, a direct forbear of the genus Canis,

the owners shaved off their eyebrows, smeared mud in their hair, and mourned
aloud for days.
