The world's oldest-known living cancer dates back 11,000 years, according to UK scientists.
It arose in a single dog and has survived in canines ever since, with the cancer cells passing between animals when they mate.
A team led by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute near Cambridge decoded the DNA of the cancer.
It revealed the "genetic identikit" of an ancient husky-like dog, which first developed the disease.
So.. it seems that despite man being only 6,000 years old and 5,000 years before imperfection entered humanity and the natural world and when Genesis 1:31 stated: "God saw all that he had made, and it was very good."
He was already killing dogs and set them up to die very slow and painful deaths.
