This pooch doesn’t look too impressed at having to pose for a photo. “Get it over with and let me get back to snoozing!” Thanks to The Anchor at Tideswell, Derbyshire for this photo of one of their resident pooches.
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.
