Archeologist, Eric Tourigny, joins Anna to discuss his research into pet cemeteries. Whilst this might sound sombre, in fact its an archaeological journey of human-animal relationships through time notably being defined in Victorian era and continually refined as time goes on. Chatting about the little know Hyde Park pet cemetery in London and the Cimetières des Chiens in Paris and others across the UK about what they reveal about us.

What is A Dog's Life with Anna Webb?
They’re companions, guardians, and much much more – they complete us. And they just might save us from ourselves.
Anna Webb explores all levels of modern dog ownership and brings to life why every dog is extraordinary.
She speaks to scientists and experts - people who have and are changing our understanding of dogs - on everything from emotional intelligence to nutrition to behaviour, delving deep into subjects like homeopathy, telepathic communication and the pet food scandal.
It's thought provoking, alternative, and not a little subversive.
