Dog's tooth leads to discovery of earliest known journey in UK history | Science | The Guardian

So this is why you need a dog when you go bush-crafting, it's part of that historic course of what our ancestors did 7.000 years ago by the hunter-gatherer. 

I found the fact they can tell the dog drank water in Yorkshire and found the remains 250 miles away at Blick Mead, near Stone Henge in Wiltshire, fascinating. 

So maybe next time you fancy going out to do a trek, hike,  a bushcraft camp out grab your trusty staff (in my case a Hickston Trekstick ) and take your dog.
