The Story of the World's Favourite DogBook - 2015
A social history of man and Labrador, and how they have become the world's most beloved dogs, by long-time dog lover, writer and presenter Ben Fogle, whose beloved black Labrador, Inca, famously accompanied him on numerous journeys and adventures. Native to Newfoundland, where they worked side-by-side with fishermen, then brought to England in the 1800s by English ships, Labradors are not only popular as a family companion but also excel in hunting, tracking, retrieving, guiding and rescuing. In this social history of the Labrador, Ben Fogle investigates what makes Labradors so beloved and why they are considered so trustworthy.
