As many of you know, Lettice and I are fervent supporters of Dogs Trust and when they ask, we pretty much always say yes. So when a request came in to send them a photo of me and Letty, and to fill in a questionnaire about our relationship I hopped to it.
And this is what it was all for: a book from Dogs Trust to celebrate their 125th anniversary this year, featuring all manner of people and their beloved canine companions, from Ryan Gosling and his mutt George, to Pudsy and Ashleigh via Lewis Hamilton and his Bulldog Roscoe, and Olympian Louis Smith and his husky Luna.
I particularly like that my friend Lilah Parsons (who features with her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Betty), and I have both told inappropriate poo-ing stories.
So PLEASE do go buy the book – it’s a perfect present too for birthdays and Christmas stockings, and 100% of the royalties goes to Dogs Trust, who do such wonderful work. (They re-home, they microchip, they raise awareness, and they change lonely people’s lives by partnering them with new canine friends.)
