Anubis. He waits. In the shadows.
He takes you to the afterlife, sorts out your mummification and weighs you in the balance.
But he’s basically a dog. Or a wolf. Or a jackal. Or, whatever you choose to believe.
I was discussing ancient dog breeds with a very good internet friend. We both agreed that Egyptian type, greyhound-based dogs were well up there as a contender for oldest dog breeds.
Huskies are also meant to be olde dogges, and Pippa was called wolf and lobo more times than enough.
To me though, Snowy hits the mark.
Anubis, although without the necklace and albino not black.
So, oldest dogs? Podencos should have a shout. Show me one dog that looks more like an Egyptian Pharoah dog than Snowy.
