Meet The Great Pub Dogs Of The UK

Seven years ago, a chance encounter with a bull terrier wearing a scarlet neckerchief in a pub gave London-based film-maker Abbie Lucas and journalist Paul Fleckney an idea. For their new book, Great British Pub Dogs, the pair travelled the country to document the biggest, smallest, cutest, funniest, sweetest, most-endearing resident dogs (and one pig) of around 70 UK pubs . They met old dogs and young dogs, horse-sized dogs and pint-sized dogs. One pub had three Jack Russells, another had four red setters. Many had been rescued, and given a fresh start in a loving home. One was blind in one eye, another had only three legs. The pub dogs were named after Italian footballers, French philosophers, Coronation Street stars and the Hungarian credit crunch. "Most pubs aspire to be a home from home and having a dog does that almost singlehandedly. They seem to bring people together. So many publicans said how the dog seems to make people friendlier and less likely to misbehave", they told the Guardian. Here are some of the bar's best friends. For more pub stories, "Great British Pub Dogs" on Amazon.

If you aren't familiar with these cats, here's what you need to know: Larry is the Mouser in Chief at the Prime Minister's residence in the U.K. and Palmerston is the Foreign Office cat that lives next door. The two don't seem to like each other very much and British news outlets can't help but cover all of their cat-on-cat drama.

Larry and Palmerston had their worst fight yet the other night and the MiC had to make a visit to the vet. Hopefully they'll be able to settle their political differences soon, before they both get hurt.

The #CatsAgainstBrexit Hashtag Is Taking Over Twitter As the EU Referendum Approaches

If you aren't familiar with the historic Brexit vote that's about to take place, here's the gist: British voters will soon decide if they want the United Kingdom to remain in or leave the European Union. It's kind of a big deal, but who cares what humans think, right? The cats have spoken and they are very much against "the British exit".
