A lovely photo from @FelicityCloake of pub pooch Wilf – doesn’t he just look like a Wilf? – in The Crown, North London demanding peanuts! And no one’s going in or out til he gets some! Thanks for the photo!
One of the best, most welcoming, sights in a public house is the presence of a pub dog.
Lazing by an open fire. At the feet of their master. Bowl of water. Maybe a sneaky beer taster. Fresh from a walk. Snaffling round for rogue nuts and scratchings. Sniffing out recent canine visitors. Fussed over by other drinkers. Can I say hello to your dog? What his name? It is a he isn’t it?
They’re an essential part of what makes British pubs so great.
