The story of the canine has been since earliest times entwined with that of humanity itself, and this ancient and fascinating story is told in Dog. The book unravels the wolf-dog debate, and explores canines in mythology, religion, and health. It examines the relatively recent phenomenon of dog breeding and the invention of species, as well as the canine's role in science, fact and fiction: from Laika, the first astronaut, and Pavlov's famous dogs, through science fiction novels and cult films such as Lassie and A Boy and his Dog. Susan McHugh shows how dogs today contribute to human lives in a huge number of ways, how we have shaped dogs over the millennia, and how dogs have shaped us.
