To discover which dogs will suit them best, readers take simple personality tests that reveal what they are looking for in a relationship.

Stories about people and their four-legged best friends - and a gallery of photographs - capture the special dynamics between couples ranging from Freud and his Chow-Chow to Picasso and his Afghan hound.
