Could dog be Bigfoot's best friend too?
We humans have a long history with our canine companions that stretch many thousands of years. There is no way to know who extended the first paw, man or beast, but it seems the relationship was destined to be as natural as rain from clouds. Both initially formed this bond for selfish reasons, which slowly grew into a friendship that would have neither partner having it any other way. For the wolf, we were a low energy alternative source for finding food as scavengers looking for an easy meal and awareness that we hunted the same prey. They would lurk near our camps in prehistoric times and make off with scraps of food that we may have discarded or left out carelessly… but we hominids soon saw the benefit of having an animal like this in the shadows, even at the price of what may have first seemed an annoyance. They alerted us to the always present dangers of something unwanted coming too close with their much better sense of smell and hearing and therein lies the beginning of a symbiotic courtship, that would last the test of time.
Hound and man formed a partnership, where we scratched its belly and it scratched ours and we soon incorporated, four feet with tail, into our hunting routines, our families, and even our hearts. Much more than an early warning system, the dog was more than happy to earn its keep and help with the burden of keeping our stomachs full and it would not take long after that before we would learn to breed them for the qualities that we felt the tail wagger was better suited for than us.
So the question I have is, is it possible that Bigfoot too could have formed a similar comraderie with wolves or even coyotes…If not as a pet, maybe an ally? We have seen odd and unlikely friendships in nature many times, especially with the abandoned young and it is an intriguing thought, to say the very least, that Bigfoot, if real, could be doing the same.
It wasn’t until this point in writing this article that I actually decided to do some research and amazingly I found that this is not the first time this question has been pondered. In fact I just read where baboons have been documented kidnapping feral dogs and keeping them as pets in some parts of Africa, so it seems my thought was not as farfetched as I was thinking it may be when I set out to write this post. The dogs are believed to be considered an extension of the baboon’s own family just as we think of our own dogs. They are known to groom and care for them which is something they only do with accepted members of their own group and I find it fascinating the idea of another species having the same fondness that we do for dogs.
I was lucky enough to find a video (link below) of this (baboon kidnapping dogs), and it is must see if you can get through the first few minutes when the kidnapping takes place. I found the story and clip to be very profound, since I decided to write this without any prior knowledge that it was anything more than me just thinking out loud.
I almost think that if there truly is a large, intelligent bi-pedal animal roaming our woods that is much like us, than there is a good chance this has happened and could even be common place. I have never heard of dog prints alongside suspected Sasquatch ones, but that doesn’t mean that they haven’t been reported or the connection overlooked. The dogs may be yet another reason why Sasquatch may be so elusive and for the very reasons we first appreciated them ourselves.
It’s kind of nice in a way to think that Bigfoot may have a friend and a similar bond with an animal that we hold dear to ourselves and I for one am willing to share. Just not my dog though. He can get his own.
