    Which dog starred in 26 movies and had his own chef and chauffeur?The close relationship between humans and beloved canine companions spans more than 15,000 years. During this time dogs have guarded us, worked with us and marched off to war with us. They’ve saved our lives, kept us company and helped us with daily tasks.  Their story is our story.
