Lotti the Burmese Mountain Dog asking for her beer and biscuits in The Royal Oak, Potton, Bedfordshire. Looks like there’s a bit of a queue forming behind her… Hurry up! Thanks to @BAlistair for the ace 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.
