“What son of a bitch doesn’t like dogs?”
Humphrey Bogart was married to his third wife, Mayo Methot, and living in West Hollywood when this photograph of him resting his head on Cappy the newfoundland was taken. He and Methot were dubbed the “Battling Bogaerts”: drunken fights and shouting matches marked what was a largely unhappy marriage. The couple kept four dogs, numerous cats and cage birds at their home and, when they separated, Bogart took the dogs. After his marriage to Lauren Bacall in 1945, the couple acquired two boxers – Harvey and Babe – who with the pop George accompanied the Bogarts to the super-smart LA suburb of Holmby hills. There, the boxer so disturbed the neighbors with their barking that a group of them lodged a complaint with the City Council, and suggested the dogs have there vocal cords removed. “What son of a bitch doesn’t like dogs?” Raged Bogie. “What kind of monster is he? He ought to be glad he can hear the wonderful sound of dogs barking.”
