Archives of Ontario's wonderful exhibit ANIMALIA: Animals in the Archives inspired us. So we pawed through our Digital Archive Ontario to dig up items with a particular pet in mind — dogs. (Sorry, cat lovers!)

A lot of items highlighted below are either from our large number of digitized early children's books or Toronto Star photos.

May your dog days — and all other days — be filled with many fine canines!
