This newspaper article ran in dozens of papers in 1901, this one being one from Pennsylvania. The chow dog was a very unique novelty to Americans this early on and most came here either directly from China via gifts brought home by sailors and travelers, or from very early breeders in England.
How I would love to see a copy of Chow Chow’s enlistment papers. I wonder if they are still in the Navy archives?
