The summer I worked for Srinigar, I had a deerhound I took everywhere with me… I was so hoping my mother would let me bring him home, but of course that was a firm no! I wonder if my life would have been different if I’d had horses and dogs to put my energy into rather than sex, drugs and rock and roll.

I don’t have any pictures of Robbie but this one – he is one of the ten puppies in this photo by Victor Baldwin. How did he get all those puppies to hold still?!
