The latest installment in my Human series takes a look at the history of pets, our relationship with animals and the dog/human partnership. Along the way, we learn how the cuteness of babies has altered dog breeds as well as cartoon characters.

This video includes collaborations with the incredible BBC Earth and the absurdly talented duo Rhett & Link.

Special thanks to contributions by illustrator Ian Gibson, graphics wizard Eric Langlay, audio master Jay Pellizzi and wordsmith Matthew Tabor.
