Unlike most of the authors at Dream Dogs, I didn’t have a dog when I was a kid – but that didn’t stop me offering to walk every dog on the street. I remember one in particular, a black Labrador/German Shepherd cross called Snickers, who I used to spend hours with every weekend. Even if he wasn’t allowed out for a walk, I’d sit in the backyard with him!

I own a Labrador called Ben, who is very well-behaved – mostly – and loves pigs ears and muddy walks on a Sunday.
