Abraham Lincoln (1809 – 1865)

“If you call a tail a leg, how many legs has a dog? Five? No, calling a tail a leg don’t make it a leg.”

Lincoln’s Dog – Fido

Fido was Abraham Lincoln’s dog in Springfield. He was floppy eared, yellowish in color with short rough fur. At the local market Fido would often be spotted with a parcel in his mouth walking behind his master. He was also a regular at Billy the Barber where Lincoln would go for haircuts.

Fido died in an unfortunate encounter with a drunk man less than a year after Lincoln was assassinated.
