Life As A Dog

Is the dog a human's best friend? Well, if the animal's popularity is anything to go by, perhaps that's true. The affection for dogs f is and has been the real deal for some time. How we used to think about dogs can be judged by looking at how they have been portrayed in language over the centuries.

The first linguistic oddity to do with dogs concerns the origin of the word Dog. The name was preceded by the perfectly good Anglo-Saxon word hound, which was also used in other European languages.

Prior to the 18th-century dogs were kept for hunting and defense and not as pets. The only deviation from that rule was that of the derided lap-dog, circa 1684, as a dog fit only for ladies.

And while on the subject of ladies, and since they always must be first, here are our top three favorites for American DOG stories.
