In Homer's Odyssey, Odysseus returns from fighting in Troy to Ithaca where he finds his home is overrun with people after his wife Penelope, so he disguises himself as a beggar and enters and the only one that recognizes him is his dog, Argos. He’s been gone for ten years and the dog is old and in a bad way and lifts his head and wags his tail. Unable to greet his faithful dog and give away his plan he sheds a tear and passes by. The dog dies and the whole thing is terrible. Growing up, I had a dog named Wolf and this is from a drawing of him. Fido from the latin - I Trust. Fidelity. Dogs will always make me smile.
