Description
If you have ever looked at a dog waiting to go for a walk and thought there was something almost human about his sad expression, you're not alone; Charles Darwin did exactly the same thing. The English gentleman-naturalist and pioneer of the theory of evolution was also a devoted dog-lover, and looked to his dogs as evidence in his continuing argument that all animals, including humans, descended from a common ancestor. Independent on Sunday columnist Emma Townshend looks at Darwin’s life through this canine perspective, from his fond letters home inquiring after the health of family pets to his profound scientific consideration of the ancestry of the domesticated dog.
