Prehistoric rock art: earliest depicting dogs

Dogs have been our best friends for a very long time, and now we have the earliest ever pictorial evidence of that bond.

Prehistoric rock art found in Saudi Arabia shows humans hunting with dogs on leashes - and it looks like those pictures could be at least 8,000 years old, making them the earliest art depicting dogs.

If the dating turns out to be accurate, it would also beat Iranian pottery painted with dogs from just under 8,000 years ago.
