Retro Rover-The First Ever Dog Film

Proof that as long as people have been working, a dog has been waiting eagerly for them to come home.   This film, made in 1895, by the Lumiere brothers, early french pioneers of cinematography.   It shows workers leaving the Lyon factory in France, and wandering though the crowd, a dog clearly anxious for the exit of his master!
