Product description

If you don't believe that one dog has the power to alter civilization, then you've obviously never heard of Biche, Frederick the Great's Italian Greyhound, who sparked a war between France and Prussia. Or Robot, the dog who discovered the famous cave paintings at Lascaux, France. Or Laika, the first earthling, let alone dog, to orbit Earth. "100 Dogs Who Changed Civilization" offers factual accounts of dogs who played myriad roles in human history, either through their own accomplishments or via their influence over someone famous. With its classy, upmarket, gifty hardcover format, "100 Dogs Who Changed Civilization" will appeal to dog lovers, history buffs, and readers of all ages!
