By (author) Andrew Cotter
OLIVE & MABEL: two of the internet’s favourite dogs!ANDREW COTTER: one of our best-loved commentators.When Andrew Cotter turned his brilliant sporting commentaries from the Masters, the Open, Wimbledon and the Six Nations to the lockdown contests between his two Labradors, Olive and Mabel, the result was an internet sensation. The series of videos – including Game of Bones – has been viewed well over 50 million times on social media, and the videos have resonated with dog owners and sports fans everywhere.In OLIVE, MABEL AND ME, Andrew gives us a commentary of a different kind as he tells the heart-warming story of life with his two famous Labradors, Olive and Mabel. This is the full story of their rise to internet stardom and how walking and climbing in the mountains helps them all find peace, joy and happiness away from the hectic world of the media.Above all, however, this is a book about the love we have for our dogs and the companionship and joy we can find from sharing our lives with our fabulous canine friends, as Andrew has done with dogs throughout his life.Beautifully written, touching and laugh out loud funny, OLIVE, MABEL AND ME is a treat for dog lovers everywhere.
