Some of you may know that my mum is interested in family history. She looks at old census records a lot trying to find her ancestors. In case you didn't know, a census is a like counting off except you put your name and age and some other information. They ask information like name, age, birthplace, occupation, whether married and number of children. It's only for people but Mr. Little, a man in England in 1911, decided he wanted to include his dog, Roger. (You can click on the picture if you want to see it bigger.)
The people in the Little family are on lines 1-4. Then, on line 9, Mr. Little wrote, "Incidentally, we have an Airedale Terrier. I don't know whether particulars are required, but in case you want them here they are."
On line 11, he wrote Roger's information:
He was 5 years old and had more than 100 children. His occupation was watchdog, he was self-employed, and he looked after the house both inside and outside. He was born in Keighley, Yorkshire.
I wish my mum would put me on a census so people would know about me in 100 years.
I wonder if Roger looked anything like me.
