Various animals have contributed to the life of man since ancient times. And there are many such stories in our Puranas in which animals have been shown as companions of gods and goddesses.

Thus Yudhishthira, along with Draupadi and his brothers, proceeded towards the very high Mount Meru, the gates of heaven. But when he left his palace, a dog wagging his tail followed him.
The journey to Mount Meru was long and tiring. When the Pandavas family went on the journey, the dog would start walking ahead with them, and when it rested, it would also stop.
