During Lockdown, when rules allowed, Bob found he had some of London’s most extraordinary landmarks all to himself…

When the UK was in lockdown, the usually heaving streets of London emptied and the city became unrecognisable.

Mini Labradoodle Bob is furry, soft, and lovable. In Dog About Town, we get to see the beauty of London from his dog’s eye view.

Follow Bob as he explores the City of London at its emptiest, from a deserted Covent Garden to an abandoned Tower Bridge. If he’s not looking regal at Buckingham Palace, he’s salivating at Smithfield market.

All captured on an iPhone, this collection of Bob’s selfies offers fascinating insight into pandemic life, served with humour and charm.

Accompanied by witty captions, this book will have any dog lover chuckling, whilst making them feel as warm and fluffy on the inside as Bob is on the outside.

The perfect Christmas present for London and dog lovers alike, Dog About Town’s lightness of touch offers a fresh perspective on lockdown and allows the reader to reflect on the past two years, with a pawsome new literary talent. Bob is a life-long London resident, with a penchant for bones, rolling in mud, snoozing and, of course, Instagram. This is his first book.

A contribution from every copy of Dog About Town will be made to the dog rescue and rehoming charity All Dogs Matter.

My thoughts

I love this book. The pictures are brilliant and the captions are very clever. And of course Bob is such a sweetie.

I recently lost my beloved Jack Russell, Pancake, four weeks shy of 17 years old, so this book is for her, for me, and for everyone else who loves dogs and for those who are still missing their best friends.

By the Author

Truth be told, I’m not really one for culture or history. I generally prefer chasing balls, running, swimming and mud in all its forms. However, during the pandemic, I humoured my owners by accompanying them on some walks around London. To be fair, the urban sniffing was good, we had the streets practically to ourselves, and in return for some pretty tasty treats, I agreed to pose in front of some iconic, and some less familiar, landmarks. I never thought a scruffy labradoodle like me would make it into a book, but if these images of a deserted London, with me in it, raises a smile and helps some of the less fortunate canine community, then it seems a good idea.

And in case anyone is interested, I’m now a fully qualified tour guide, with a special interest in the Houses of Pawliament.
