Mummy, The - Barking Dogs
In the very beginning, you are shown a typical Egyptian market. The narrator is talking, and you hear the regular village market business. You can hear people talking, children playing, and DOGS BARKING. This is historically incorrect for two reasons. One, common Ancient Egyptians didn’t have dogs. Dogs were considered sacred animals; therefore only Egyptian Pharaohs were allowed to have dogs. Egyptian Pharaohs, as a rule, did NOT mingle with the public. Two, even if, for some strange reason, an Egyptian Pharaoh happened to be out walking his dog(s), the would NOT be barking. Egyptian dogs, no matter how talented, DID NOT BARK!

They don't bark???? Pray tell then, why was it that the ancient Egyptian word for dog was "iwiw", which referred to the dog's bark? The Basenji (a square-headed, prick-eared breed with short hair) was the only one that did not bark...it yodeled).

This is not correct. Whatever rituals the Pharoahs had, or the place of dogs in myth, there has been no society in history that didn't have dogs in the street, from Siberia to the Native American culture.
