The Northerner and the Pup

As a northerner born and bred in the harsh hills of the Yorkshire Dales, my life has been filled with a string of family pets; namely dogs. When I say dogs, I mean worker breeds. Traditional breeds…Proper dogs. These ranged from breeds associated with ratting like border terriers to hunting …

Kneehigh you swines!

Wednesday, November 25, 2015 • Ryan Byrne


Whenever I learn that somebody is going to see Knee Highs’s Dead Dog in a Suitcase I warn them of three things. “You’ll either hate it, Love it, Or love it so much it will annoy you” That’s because the very first time I laid my failing eyes on the …
