Animals are not eternised or essentialised but inserted into history and culture along with humans: Doss in Olive Schreiner's The Story of an African Farm (1883), for example, is never represented as having to be trained presumably because, in the Victorian era, training was irrelevant to dogs who were seen as knowledgeable and trustworthy while epitomising servitude in a master-servant relationship (see Musselman 2008).
