"Beautifully written...as funny as you would hope." (The Times)
Olive and Mabel: two of the internet's favorite dogs!
Andrew Cotter: one of our best-loved commentators.
Olive and Mabel are the Labradors that broke the internet. With more than 50 million views on social media, Andrew Cotter's brilliant commentaries on videos of his Labradors have resonated with dog owners and sports fans around the world, giving us all something to smile about in this most testing of years, as Olive and Mabel entertained us with their dinner contest, Game of Bones, Zoom meeting, online dating, and more over the last six months.
Now, in Olive, Mabel & Me, Andrew tells the heart-warming story of life with his two famous Labradors. This is the full story of their unexpected rise to internet stardom, their lives together, how the dogs are dealing with their newfound fame (celebrity fans, more offers of biscuits, etc.), and how trips to the beaches and the mountains help them all find peace and happiness away from a hectic world.
Above all, Olive, Mabel & Me is a book about the love we have for our dogs and the companionship and joy they bring and about how we can all benefit from being just a little bit more Labrador!
Brilliantly observed, touching, and laugh-out-loud funny, Olive, Mabel & Me is a treat for dog lovers everywhere.
A Must For Dog Lovers
I downloaded this book after reading Dog Days & found it thoroughly enjoyable. Andrew has a frank, self-effacing & witty style of writing and there are many ‘laugh out loud’ moments as he recounts stories of his dogs (especially Mabel & her daftness). He also lets you in a bit on his younger years & how his love for dogs was established early on. He educates the reader in various ways as he explains how dogs withstand a range of temperatures as well as the detail he goes into about the Munro’s for instance. As a dog owner myself I found this book easy to relate to especially when he talks about Olive’s behaviour ( I have a black Lab). Andrew is a talented author and narrator & this book is an absolute must for anyone who loves, owns or has owned a dog.
A delight from start to finish
A gentle and beautiful tale of two very good dogs and their very good owner.
Olive mable & me
Having owned two Labradors I loved this book I can recommend it to any animal lover.
The part where Mable is shouting at the front gate made me spit my tea everywhere.
