Today's Macro Photograph. Pets

MacroPhotoFun   SOLVED by facebook fan: Claire.  This is a paw.  The study of when dogs were domesticated is still a work in progress. The current belief is that dog domestication was a long process that began about 30,000 years ago, the earliest evidence of a domesticated dog comes from Germany 14,000 years ago. It is believed that all current domesticated dogs are descendents of gray wolves.
There are an estimated 72 million dogs in the United States, they account for 37.2 percent of all household pets, followed by cats 32.4 percent, birds 3.9 percent, and horses at 1.8 percent.
