First edition. Hardcover in buff and brown cloth with spine lettered in gilt. xiv+ 544 pp. with index. bibliography. 57 illustrations by Mamie Harmon. One of the scarcest and most sought after 20th century works on dogs that covers the folklore of dogs from all all parts of the world. The title was suggested by an old American Indian myth in which "the creator was going around creating things and he took a dog." Includes, among other things, myths that assume a precreation dog; myths about the origin of the dog; dogs and vehicles, messengers and watchdogs of the gods; dog as culture hero; stories of constellations containing dogs; ghost dogs; dogs as guardians, omens; mad dogs; riddles and proverbs with dogs; and famous fables involving them. A tight, very good or somewhat better example, slight fade to the edges of the boards. In the original dust jacketwhich is somewhat tattered about the edges and rubbed at the folds.
