Back To School "Ciara Clarke, the dog’s owner, told The Dodo that her name is Lucky and that she was adopted by Clarke as a stray.”It doesn’t surprise me that she visits the school!” Clarke said. “She’s incredibly sweet and affectionate and loves nothing more than a cuddle!”

“What Dogs Want” … Author Mat Ward - Illustrations by Rupert Fawcett
Sharing some book news I came across a book via BBC Radio 2 in the UK yesterday written by Mat Ward, which gets excellent reviews, however the best endorsement for me was that Rupert Fawcett was the illustrator.
TrustedHousesitters collaborated with Rupert this year when we commissioned a series of cartoons describing pet anxiety from the dog’s perspective. We know that Rupert Fawcett is such a huge animal lover that he only works with people who put animals first and rarely does commissions and illustrations.
Mat Ward is a dog behaviourist who champions reward-based training and he has helped thousands of pets and owners improve their wellbeing over the past two decades. His skills were tested to the limit when he took on the challenge of teaching a rescue dog to fly a plane for the TV show Dogs Might Fly . Mat lives in New Zealand with his wife, children, two cats and two dogs.
Rupert Fawcett is a British cartoonist and writer, who is best known for his critically acclaimed comic strips, Fred (produced since 1989), Daddy and Off The Leash . The success of Fred led to the sale of over nine million greetings cards. Rupert has appeared on Good Morning Britain , The Big Breakfast , Midweek and numerous other TV and radio programmes. His current projects include Off The Leash animations and various books. He lives in London.
