A Dog's Age
Dogs have a long history in Newfoundland and Labrador. A dog burial, dating to 3900 years ago, was found at an archaeological site at Port au Choix. Since then, dogs including the famous Newfoundland Dog, the Labrador Retriever and the Husky have worked and played here for hundreds of years. Dogs are loved as pets, life-savers and hunting companions. Spanning the full scope of our collections, this exhibition shows the valuable contributions of our furry friends in rural and urban life, from way back in the day to modern times.
