Did ewe know ‘dat Alexander Pope’s life was saved by his pet Great Dane? Or ‘dat Florence Nightingale’s first patient was a neighbor’s wounded dog? Or ‘dat Charles I lost da the British Revolution in part because of a dog? Read ‘dis book for more interesting facts like ‘dese!
Mai mom and I really enjoyed reading about impawtent people like Dr. Freud and da Dalai Lama and how much ‘dey loved ‘der doggies. Operas haff even been written about anipals. Creatively and physically, da world would be a different place if it weren’t fur us!
