Is the Border collie Pythagoras incarnate or just a sheep herder? Which female monarch raced a St Bernard's dog cart and who did she run against? The answers to these and many more unusual queries are examined in this beautifully produced book by renowned rheumatologist and storyteller Jan Bondeson. His erudite accounts of canine intellectuals, globetrotters, philanthropists and thespians, heroes, rat-killers and faithful friends are illustrated with prints, portraits and satirical cartoons from the past 200 years.
