How much do you love your pet? Probably quite a lot. Enough to mummify it when it passes? Maybe not, but that's not to say it hasn't been done. In a new book 'A History of the World in 50 Dogs' out soon by Abrams, you'll find an array of facts and extraordinary stories about our loyal companions. The book is illustrated exclusively by Petra Eriksson, who took on the task of bringing to life some of the most beloved hounds of history.
