Dogman & Ancient Egyptian Gods (Dog/“Jackal”-Headed Anubis and Wepwawet – Brothers)
Anubis and Wepwawet were/are Ancient Egyptian Gods; notice how their bodies are hairless, like a human’s; vs. “Dogman” who has a hairy body. If these mythological figures were/are real – It would make perfect sense to me how/why the Michigan Dogman is depicted with a furry body. If cryptids evolve from other cryptids – the Michigan Dogman would need a thick coat of fur, to stay warm/survive in Michigan’s often freezing climates. Meanwhile; Anubis & Wepwawet supposedly existed in Ancient Egypt – a place with an extremely hot/arid climate – where having a densely-furred body would be a detriment, not an asset. I wonder : If modern cryptids evolve from ancient cryptids??? It would make perfect sense to me – as this paradigm of possible evolution follows the Darwinian model of evolution!
I don’t know if I even believe in Dogman – I only recently heard of him; I just thought this was an interesting comparison to draw!

They are obviously not the same species as Dogman. The morphology is totally different, so it cannot be an evolutionary issue as postulated above. No, these two brothers were a totally different thing. Possibly even different from all the other reported examples.
There were a lot of reports of dog-headed but otherwise regular folk back then, for a very long time. You could deal and trade with them, although could only bark. I am willing to bet that these Gods could talk. It would have helped them achieve their status, surely.
Our modern Dogman is much more a wild animal that you would not want to deal with.
