About This Book

With chapters on domestic animals such as cats and dogs, through to working animals such as cart horses and pit ponies, this volume is a comprehensive guide to the creatures of Newcastle. Discover the story of the 'learned dog' who could 'read, write and cast accounts', find out about long-forgotten institutions such as the Pig Club and the Dickie Bird Club (as seen in the Newcastle Chronicle of the 1870s), and read about the first ever dog show in the world, which was held in Newcastle in 1859. This fascinating work is a must have for all animal lovers; no bookshelf would be complete without it.
