History Is Going to the Dogs

If you want a chuckle, visit Canine Chronicles to see images of dogs dressed as companions of historical figures. (The one of Steve Job’s dog alone is worth the click.) The jaunty pug, pictured above, is Charlie Chaplin’s best friend.

The website is the brainchild of three sisters, who pooled their talents to retell historical moments through the viewpoints of dogs. The end result of their collaboration will be a book featuring photos of the gussied-up dogs in period costumes along with fictional tales of their contributions. You can also read more about the project at ABC News.
