On Sunday 11 October, we held a very jolly signing of my new book Dachshunds: the Long and the Short of Them in the Radic Pavilion at Hauser & Wirth Somerset in Bruton. As a (very) special concession, dogs were allowed to enter Piet Oudolf’s beautiful field of flowers behind the gallery, and we held a virtual dog show, with entries photographed and displayed. The sun shone, Mitzi und Heidi behaved perfectly, and we were delighted to welcome friends both human and canine. With thanks to all at the gallery for hosting, especially to Iwan and Manuela Wirth, whose smooth-haired miniature Yoko is one of the stars of the book.
