Man and dog have evolved together for at least 60 000 years. No other animal is more capable of reading human emotions, including, quite possibly, other humans. It is believed that without the dog man would not have domesticated cows, pigs and horses and would therefore still be living as hunters & gatherers. We owe civilisation to our dogs. In our family we have evolved alongside our dogs since June 1994. This is when Diesel, our first Bernese Mountain dog, came into our lives. A couple of years later Roxy arrived on the scene. Diesel passed away in 2014 but Roxy is still here to keep us civilised. Stay calm and love dog.
