Abe Lincoln and his dog were devoted companions. Where Lincoln went in Springfield, the dog followed. Fido was never scolded. He was always allowed in the house when he scratched the door, and into the dining room at mealtimes where he was fed from the table. Apparently he was so spoiled that he slept on his own horsehair sofa. To read more about Lincoln's dog, Fido, read the Abraham Lincoln Research Site.
