LEG­ENDARY ther­apy dog, Doug the Pug, vis­ited the Ger­rards Cross Book­shop, Pack­horse Road, on Satur­day.

Around 60 peo­ple pet­ted, pat­ted and talked to him with his owner, Cate Archer, as he paw printed copies of his new book book, Doug the Pug – A Work­ing Dog’s Tale.

All roy­al­ties from the book will go to the char­ity Pets As Ther­apy.

One of the own­ers of the shop, Martin McKean, said: “It was briliant. Cate brought her lovely Doug the Pug and she man­aged to at­tract a good au­di­ence of peo­ple who knew of her, knew her work, knew the dog and who were just gen­er­ally in­ter­ested in the work that she does. It was a good event and it pulled a lot of peo­ple in.”

He added: “Ev­ery­one wanted their pho­tos taken with him and were talk­ing to him - they were ob­vi­ously dog lovers.”

Mr McKean was full of praise for dog, as he was ‘re­ally pa­tient’ and sat there en­joy­ing the at­ten­tion. “Peo­ple were re­ally warm and re­ally af­fec­tion­ate,” he added.
