    Summary:

    Canadian history is full of touching stories of animal companionship, and some relationships between people and their cherished companions are legendary. From Grey Owl and the Beaver People to Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King's "little angel dogs" to Emily Carr's menagerie, these stories describe notable people and their relationships with their pets. Cheryl MacDonald also shares the story of the original Winnie the Pooh, describes the eventful life and the tragic end of Jumbo the elephant and looks at the "valiant but voiceless" dogs and horses employed in police work.
