 Notable Dogs

 

There are dogs featured in almost every aspect of our culture. Some are real dogs, some are comic strip dogs, some are mythical dogs and some are dogs in someone's imagination. Here is a list of 62 dogs of note with some information on who they are and where they came from. I might add the three of them; Bullet, Lassie, and Rin Tin Tin were exceptionally well trained. And if you've been reading my emails, blogs or articles, you know that:

A trained dog is a happy dog and has a happy owner.
