Lady lives in a cottage with her Master, landed gentry of course, in Cornwall. Her ‘Mistress’ is long gone but of course they don’t miss her at all. She has everything she needs, but runs a small charity helping Old Dogs come to terms with their owners modern obsessions with hygiene. Her weekends are spent frolicking in the organic vegetable gardens, nibbling on broad beans and rainbow chard and contributing to the composting.

Lady was reluctant to strut her stuff on Dogs’ ears at first, and it took a lot of patient persuasion from the Dogs’ Ears team and then her Master to get her to take part – and then we had to promise to plug her two favourite charities: New Tricks for Old Dogs (Health & Hygiene Matters!) and Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

Once in front of the camera however, Lady becomes something of a fairy tale Princess, and her demure charisma and understated beauty has made her the muse of fashionista photographer Bonio Testino alongside other classic beauties such as Princess Diana (‘Yes, I know I’m reminiscent of her,’ says Lady ‘But that may well be because we are seventeenth cousins nine times removed…’) and supermodel rock chick Kate Moss (‘No comment!’).
