Tin Tin’s Snowy Odysseus’s Argos Darwin’s Polly Mary Queen of Scots’s 22 lap-dogs Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s Flush… Behind every great man or woman is a dog. A Dictionary of Interesting and Important Dogs is a rich compendium of the world’s most significant and beloved dogs. Embracing the intriguing and the provocative the essential and the trivial Peter J. Conradi forays into history literature and personal anecdotes to unearth a treasure trove of canine characters. Discover the stories behind Karl Marx’s and his daughter’s Dogberry Club; the lapdogs who were secreted in first-class cabins on the Titanic and how they survived; Edinburgh’s Greyfriars Bobby who stayed by his master’s grave for 14 years; and the one undisputed fact about Shakespeare – his singular dislike for dogs. A Dictionary of Interesting and Important Dogs is a wonderful and witty homage to man’s most faithful friend.
