KIRKUS REVIEW

A routine job, this symposium of data regarding dogs of history and literature (or more accurately, of literary masters). In most instances, the fame of the dog is only by reflected glory, and the material seems tenuous and unimportant. Barry, the famout St Bernard, is a character in his own right; Flush, Elizabeth Berrett Browming's cocker spaniel, has been made famous by the play; Greyfriear's Bobby was immortalized in the story of that name; Balto and Igloo, two famous huskies, won their own badge of honor; the others, in the main, were not particularly interesting in themselves. Final chapters deal with dogs of the White House and dogs of war.
