Most dog lovers know Rin Tin Tin and Laika, but how about Paul McCartney's Old English Sheepdog, inspiration for the song "Martha My Dear"? Or Peritas, Alexander the Great's trusted canine companion? As long as there have been humans, those humans have had beloved companions—their dogs. From the ancient Egyptians mummifying their pups to the Indian legend of the king who refused to enter the afterlife unless his dog was allowed there too, humans are undeniably obsessed with their dogs. Told in short, illustrated essays that are interspersed with both historical and canine factoids, this homage brings to life some of history's most memorable moments through the stories of the dogs that saw them happen.
