Award-winning National Geographic photographer Richard Olsenius, and Angus Phillips, outdoor writer for the Washington Post, trace the story of companionship and codependence between man and dog that extends over the last 15,000 years of dogs living with people. How did the wolf, a ferocious pack hunter, evolve into one of mankind's most beloved companions? "Dog Stories" highlights stories of people and their unique relationships with many different types of dogs, from working dogs used on ranches and in airport security, to hunting dogs used for sport, to lap dogs on New York's Upper East Side.

About Richard Olsenius

Richard Olsenius starts his search for insight into man's relationship with dogs in a remote hillside Kibbutz in Northern Israel. There, he examines the oldest fossil evidence of man's relationship with his dog. The Natufian man and his dog, Israel, 12,000 years old, were placed lovingly together in burial, the primitive man's arm out-stretched and resting on his trusty friend. It is a strong and lasting bond that has grown ever stronger over the last 15,000 years.
