Abstract
This essay examines the role of the dog in Darwin's early research in hopes of amplifying an important source of his later conclusions found in better-known works such as Origin of the Species (1859) and The Expression of Emotion in Man and Animals (1872). By focusing on Darwin's early correspondence and research notes, canine influences on these seminal works may be revealed, and perhaps offer an additional interpretation of Darwin's ultimate conclusions about natural selection and the descent of man.
