Here's an interesting theory along the same lines. A Duke University professor argues that dogs/wolves domesticated humans rather than the other way around. Otherwise the humans would have killed off the wolves just like every other predator that competed with humans for food.

Or, we've been invaded from outer space by dogs (and conquered), as in an old SciFi story from Analog in the '60s. If I remember it correctly, the dogs/aliens make sure every human in a position of power has his own "man's best friend".
