Wait a minute - I thought that dogs were descended from wolves not that the two had common ancestors.  ???

Modern timber wolves continued to evolved as we bred dogs.  Granted they didn’t evolve much, so the common ancestor probably looks a lot like a modern wolf.


Consider the common ancestor of humans and the great apes.  Chimps kept evolving as we did, so our common ancestor is somewhere in between, ja?  >From our point of view, the common ancestor looks more like the chimps than we do, but might not we suppose that from the chimp’s point of view, the ancestor looks more like a human?
