ALBERT II

1996

This piece is available for purchase.

Albert had a tragic young life, and was a loner much of his time. He lived with his Labrador in a caravan on a farm for many years; his trust was almost entirely vested in dogs.

Albert loved people nonetheless, and was much loved within his community. When he became too infirm to stay on the farm, he was entreated to become an Almsman - to 'come indoors'. This concern was always rewarded, his answer to every enquiry for his well-being was invariably - 'top of the world!'

He was not able to have a dog of his own after he moved into his almshouse - so he adopted the entire canine population of the village - and there was not a dog who wouldn't have left home to be by his side ... he was truly the 'Pied Piper of Lambourn'.
