Olive with Dogs


Olive with two dogs in the garden. Dogs were a really integral part of country house life. The big house authors Sommerville and Ross devoted a whole book to the exploits of dogs called Maria and Other Dogs. In another of their works, The Real Charlotte, one passage of the book is narrated through Max the dog!
