The connection between animals and humans is earthly as well as divine. Animals have been mentioned in the Quran, Gospel and the Bible. They have been included in famous anecdotes telling tales of war and destruction. Animals have made their way into folklore and traditions so much so that we have a whole genre of stories dedicated to animals- fables. Aesop’s Fables are popular all over the world and we have grown up hearing them.
Fido made it to our list because of the extreme loyalty that he showed to his master during the years of the war. He is not the only dog to have done so- yet his story is one of the most touching ones. Many pets fled their homes and families during the tragic years of the World War II.
