One of the most well-known Greek mythology creatures is the three-headed dog known as Cerberus. Cerberus was a watchdog for the underworld, a loyal and faithful servant to Hades (god of the underworld) responsible for guarding the gates to prevent the spirits of the dead from escaping, but as well as to keep the living from entering without Hade’s permission.

 

The Greeks had deep respect as well as fear of wild dogs. The mythical dog Cerberus is an example of what the Greeks feared most in a dog. It also shows the respect they had for the abilities of dogs to be guardians.

 

 

Perhaps the earliest feline Egyptian goddess recorded was called Mafdet and is described in the Pyramid Texts as killing a serpent with her claws. While the Egyptians had several other feline Goddesses, Bastet (the only goddess able to transform into a cat) was represented by the domesticated cat.

 

 

 

Egyptians believed cats were magical creatures, capable of bringing good luck to the people who housed them.

To honor these treasured pets, wealthy families dressed them in jewels and fed them treats fit for royalty. Cats were so special that those who killed them, even by accident, were sentenced to death.

 

 

 

There was a goose that was pecking on the grass and she thought a horse is insulting her. So she told him in an arrogant way: I’m for sure nobler than you. Since all your abilities can be used in one environment. I can walk on the  Earth as well as you, I can flap my wings and fly high, as well as, float on water and feel refreshed with it. My abilities are of birds, fish, and anything that walks.

The horse snorted and said with contempt: It’s true that you are part of 3 environments, but you don’t look elegant in any of them. Your flying is really heavy and slow, unlike larks. It’s true that you can float on water but you can’t live in it like fish, so you can’t find your own food and you can’t handle the flow of the waves. And when you walk, you walk slowly with big feet and start honking at everything that walks by you which make them despise you. I admit that I can only walk on earth but I’m extremely agile and have beautiful legs! My body is graceful! I’m very powerful! I’m very fast! I prefer being impressive in one environment than being like you in 3.

 

 

Dogs are the first animals that humans befriended, and both of them got attached to the other, a friendship was born that lasted ages. This is based on dogs attributes like loyalty, dedication, patience, and bravery. So for thousands of years till now dogs live in harmony with humans. Old tales talked about many of the marvelous stories of dogs. Dogs help humans with many things like hunting, guarding, inspections, chasing criminals, pull carts that carry disabled people, rescuing, and as a friend who will always be there for you.

 

Wild dogs travel in groups where they hunt together, and the leader is the oldest, bravest, and with the most experience. The pregnancy of a dog lasts 2 months and you can know their age based on the color of their teeth, the darker the teeth, the older they are; and the older they are the rougher their voice gets.
