Britain’s biggest, smallest, cutest, funniest, sweetest, most-endearing pub dogs (and one pub pig)
Photographer Abbie Lucas and journalist Paul Fleckney have roamed the country, discovering the wonderful variety of Britain’s pub-dwelling dogs (and one pig, Frances Bacon) for this beautiful photographic collection.
They met old dogs and young dogs, horse-sized dogs and pint-sized dogs. One pub had three Jack Russells, another had four red setters. Many had been rescued, and given a fresh start in a loving home. One was blind in one eye, another had only three legs. The pub dogs were named after Italian footballers, French philosophers, Coronation Street stars and the Hungarian credit crunch. One had met a Beatle, another George Clooney. But one thing united them all: they were much-loved by the pub regulars – and were often “more of a friend than a dog”.
