I was going to raise the same point. Plus, if the molecular-clock dating is roughly correct and wolves were domesticated some 15,000 years ago, that probably means that domesticated dogs (and names for them) occurred practically _everywhere_ by the end of the Pleistocene. And where's the proof that the people who lived in palaeolithic China were the linguistic ancestors of the Chinese?
