WOOF: Rin Tin Tin and the Hero Dogs

By Amos St. Germain

Category Conference Papers
Abstract

Susan Orlean’s recent book on the phenomenon of Rin Tin Tin has rekindled this author’s interest in “Rinty” and our fascination with animal heroes, particularly dogs. How does Rinty work as a hero? What does Rinty tell us about ourselves?
