Apr. 23rd, 2008 @ 09:17 pm Do Dogs Guide the Dead on their Journey?
There's evidence to that effect throughout Mexico and the American Southwest. National Geographic just came out with an article on the subject "Buried Dogs Were Divine "Escorts" for Ancient Americans" which can be read here.  Thanks to Michael Ruggeri for posting about this on the Aztlan list, and adding the following:

"As an additional note, the practice of burying dogs as divine escorts is suggested from the time of the Olmecs and especially among the
Mixtecs and in Ancient West Mexico where the Colima sculpted dogs in shamanistic styles and buried these ceramics along with real dogs in
human burials."
