Olive & Mabel : two of the internet's favourite dogs.

Andrew Cotter : one of our best-loved commentators.

When Andrew Cotter turned his brilliant sporting commentaries from the Masters, the Open, Wimbledon and the Six Nations to the lockdown contests between his two Labradors, Olive and Mabel, the result was an internet sensation. The series of videos - including Game of Bones - has been viewed well over 50 million times on social media, and the videos have resonated with dog owners and sports fans everywhere.

This is the full story of their rise to internet stardom and how walking and climbing in the mountains helps them all find peace, joy and happiness away from the hectic world of the media.

Above all, however, this is a book about the love we have for our dogs and the companionship and joy we can find from sharing our lives with our fabulous canine friends, as Andrew has done with dogs throughout his life.

Beautifully written, touching and laugh out loud funny, OLIVE, MABEL AND ME is a treat for dog lovers everywhere.

"Beautifully written . . . as funny as you would hope." - The Times.

"I bought this book because I'm completely addicted to the brilliant Olive and Mabel videos presented by Mr Andrew Cotter. They've seen me through this year and have been the Lockdown highlight for my entire family. Olive and Mabel are very good dogs who live life to the full - mountain walking, beach combing (albeit for tennis balls) and starring in occasional short films. I had high hopes for the book and early on Thursday morning, sat down to read a few pages. I couldn't put it down. I know that's a cliche, but I simply had to read on. I'd be welling up one moment and laughing hysterically another. I kept reading as I put the kettle on and made numerous cups of tea. I read the entire book. Every single word. Absolutely brilliant."

"This is so much more than a lovely and funny book about Olive and Mabel . . . it covers all the emotions of the relationship between dogs and humans and is an absolute must for anyone who has had a dog, is thinking of having a dog, or for that matter has never had a dog." - Google Reviews.

'Warm, funny, touching, uplifting' - Clare Balding.

'The Labradors that broke the internet' - The Times.

'There are times when I need the brilliance of Mr Andrew Cotter' - Tim Rice.
