Book Description

Sure every dog has its day–but these 100 canines raced ahead of the pack to alter the very course of world history. In 100 Dogs Who Changed Civilization, readers will discover the inspiring true tales of dogs who’ve contributed to scientific advancements, influenced geopolitical events, inspired great works of art, and saved the lives of their beloved masters.
