Dilly, Bumble, and Barnaby are three of the luckiest dogs in the world. They live on a farm in the outstandingly beautiful Peak District area of Derbyshire, in the north of England, where they are photographed in all sorts of adorable poses by their owner, Villager Jim. Whether they are snoozing on the sofa, digging up plants, or chasing hens around the garden, their irresistible charm means all is soon forgiven. Their exploits are followed by 50,000 people on Facebook, and in the monthly Derbyshire Magazine. They also appear on a calendar and a range of greetings cards. The dogs and their owner have even been seen on BBC's Countryfile, with Villager Jim eschewing his anonymity for the day. But despite all the attention, they are still happiest sitting on their master's bench in the sunshine. Upstaging all the other residents of the farm-human and animal-these three gorgeous labradors will find their way into your heart.
Villager Jim has been described as the Banksy of wildlife photography, his identity a closely guarded secret. His photographs have won awards and have appeared on the BBC's Springwatch and Autumnwatch programmes, as well as on his popular Facebook page, www.facebook.com/VillagerJim.
