Canis Minor

History of Canis Minor

Canis Minor would be the dog of Actaeon. One day, Acteon surprised Artemis, goddess of hunting, while she bathed naked in a spring. Fascinated by its beauty, it remained to contemplate it. Furious at having been seen by a mortal, the goddess transformed him into a deer and excited against him her own dogs, which devoured him without recognizing him.
