Like the title says this is Wilson the Dogue de Bordeaux (foreground) on his first trip to the pub. I’m sure he’d look happy if he could! Lets hope it’s the first of many. Thanks to @NRR84 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.
