The Beatles in the doghouse
Obviously Paul McCartney loved his dog Martha. We all loved Martha. Something about that big sheepdog just makes me smile and the song, Martha my Dear is a fun addition to the White Album. Paul didn't just have Martha. We know that he also had a smaller dog named Eddie. And then there was a dog named Jet (whoo ooo ooo) And his son had a sheepdog named Arrow (me and my arrow....) in the 1990's as seen on the Paul is Live album.
Ringo Starr has always been a dog lover. He and Maureen had a dog named Tiger. Ringo also had some other dogs when he lived in Sunny Heights. These days he and Barb have Buster.
We know John Lennon as a cat guy. However, he had a dog named Sally growing up and he and Cynthia had a dog in Kenwood named Nigel (what else?)
George was another cat guy. But I did find a photo of him in the Bahamas in 1964 with a dog!
