YOURS (UK) - - Meeting Place -

I’ve no­ticed re­cently the pop­u­lar­ity in hol­i­day brochures for dog-friendly venues. My par­ents man­aged a pub for many years be­fore they re­tired and we were def­i­nitely dog friendly. Li­cens­ing hours in the Six­ties were 10.30am to 3pm and 6pm un­til 10.30pm. The morn­ing ses­sion was mostly made up of el­derly re­tired men and for some, their only com­pan­ion was their beloved dog. They were al­ways a great start­ing point for con­ver­sa­tions with cus­tomers and would get ev­ery­one talk­ing. The high­light of the year for the dogs was Christ­mas as I made them doggy bis­cuits and chewy sticks. This photo shows me with two of the dogs – Sherry the Labrador and Al­fie

the Great Dane. Mem­o­ries of happy days. Eve­lyn Tim­per­ley, Gateshead
