Just what we are needing now, Olive, Mabel & Me: Life and Adventures with Two Very Good Dogs is a rare treat of a book that will make you laugh aloud and perhaps expand your understanding of your dogs too. This unique and quite unforgettable book is about two dogs, Olive and Mabel, and their chronicler-extraordinaire, Andrew Cotter.
These two Labs took the digital world by storm in early 2020, when the author applied his interpretative skills to their everyday lives. The hush-toned narration is done in the manner of a sports announcer, a job that Cotter did for a living for the BBC, back when there were sporting events to announce. Come Covid and the hiatus from his normal routine and job scheduling, Cotter decided to turn to his two “girls,” Olive, a five-year-old black Lab, and the younger Mabel, a yellow Lab, as a way to get over the lockdown blues.
