Photo - McCrae - They also served - Did you know that...

Lt. Col. John McCrae and His Dog Bonneau, c. 1914
McCrae had a great love for animals and brought his horse Bonfire from Canada when he enlisted. On the other hand his dog Bonneau, who helped occupy the physician’s time between tending the wounded, was reportedly a stray that McCrae adopted in France.
