darwin's dogs

This is one of the books we're swapping tonight (see below).* One fun tangent: the Darwins loved Pepper, the badly-behaved dog of their son, George. But it looked like they'd have to put him down for biting gardeners. They couldn't settle him in Leslie Stephen's household (father of Virginia Woolf) but eventually went to live with the Archbishop of Canterbury.

* Good cover, no? And the whole design is fun, and unusual.
