So, let’s hear the story of famous and amazing dogs.
Let’s get a truly sad and heartbreaking tale out of the way first! This is the story of a German Shepherd named Capitan who demonstrates a massive dedication amongst man and beast. In 2006, Capitan’s owner and best friend, Manuel Guzman, passed away, an event the dog took so difficult that it eventually ran away. When the surviving family members visited the grave of dear Guzman a week after his death, they found Capitan laying at the gravesite of his former owner. According to Guzman’s widow, the dog had never been taken to the cemetery prior, but for a period of over six years, the loyal companion makes it a point to be back at the gravesite at 6:00 in the evening to spend his night with his deceased owner. Isn’t it amazing dogs?
Dogs and reliability normally go hand in hand, however, it’s often wondered just how loyal an animal can be. Hachiko, one of the amazing dogs, an Akita memorialized in the National Museum of Nature and Science in Tokyo, is arguably a true testament to the extent of canine loyalty to their companions. During the 1920’s, Hachiko was purchased by Professor Hidesamuro Ueno, and the two had what could be seen as an almost immediate bond.
Hachiko would accompany Ueno every day to the train station, where he would sit and wait until the professor’s return. This went on for 5 years until the day Ueno died. Until 1935 when the pup finally passed away, Hachiko waited for his friend each day, performing the same routine, in speculative hopes of Ueno’s return. Was it a conditioned routine that Hachiko was reenacting each day, or was the lone pup really waiting for his owner? This story also ended up being the inspiration for a Futurama episode titled, “Jurassic Bark”, when Fry told his amazing dogs.
Any psychology major is well acquainted with Pavlov’s famous and amazing Dogs, which were the subjects of Ivan Pavlov’s look into conditioning. During the 1890’s, Pavlov sought to explain the unconditioned responses of his dogs, who he noticed would salivate every time he entered the room, assuming their owner would be bringing them food. Pavlov played around with numerous stimuli, such as a bell and an assistant that the dogs would eventually associate with food and, therefore, salivate over. Thanks to his hungry canines, Pavlov eventually came up with the basic concept of classical conditioning, which leads to the formation of the school of Behaviorism. Unfortunately, during the Siege of Leningrad, the celebrity pups were eaten. Apparently, nobody conditioned them to run at the first sign of a starving city.
Rin Tin Tin:
The German shepherd Rin Tin Tin is known for being a famous and amazing dogs from Hollywood, but the canine’s story begins long before his first film. Rin Tin Tin was amongst a litter of five puppies that was rescued by Corporal Lee Duncan during World War I. Once old enough, Duncan gave away three of the pups, keeping two – Rin Tin Tin and Nanette, named after French good luck charms. When he returned to the states, Rin Tin Tin’s life of fame began, competing in dog shows and eventually working his way into the silent film. The German shepherd survived the worst of World War I and starred in dozens of movies and television shows before passing away in 1932. His legacy lives on, though, on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and a continued bloodline of service for amazing dogs.
Bobbie the Wonder Dog:
We’ve heard many tales of man’s fears of crossing the country in many impressive manners, but there’s something a bit more telling when a lone dog can do it to find its way back home. In 1923, Bobbie, a two-year-old Scotch Collie / English Shepherd mix, was separated from his family during a road trip to Indiana, and though the family sought long and hard, they returned home empty handed and saddened at their apparent loss.
While the family mourned, the determined Bobbie wanted one thing – to be reunited with his loving family; and so Bobbie began his journey, a 2,551 mile or 4,100-kilometer trek across all manner of terrains to return to Silverton, Oregon. After 6 months, Bobbie found his way home, his body unsurprisingly worse for wear. Despite the ordeal he had gone through, the Collie Shepherd survived and even went on to play himself in the 1924 silent film “The Call of the West”. Bobbie died in 1927, 4 years after his epic trek. It is a story of amazing dogs.
