Curator on The Pet Museum blog has posted a report from some centuries ago that women in Naples were employed as wet nurses for rich ladies' lapdogs. I got to wondering if that was likely to be true, and looked around the Net.
I came across this interesting argument about whether early humans routinely nursed wolf cubs at the breast as part of a domestication process.
I've blogged previously about one theory of where dogs originated but I didn't read anything about breast feeding at that time.
