I've been doing some restoration on my husband's family's old photographs and came across this rather charming, but ultimately sad, picture. They obviously had a maid in those days. Posh! But the dog's the star. On the back of the photograph is written "..... Tweenie, the dog who was awarded the Royal Humane Society medal for saving ma's life. Tweenie was shot a day or so later in the garden of .... by burglars who returned." So lovely Tweenie had obviously done something very brave but ultimately paid the price. How sad. Here are the pics.

(I haven't checked the records but Karen thinks the name of the dog might be Queenie. Unfortunately there's no-one left to check with so I'll do some detective work and see if I can find anything out. Thanks Karen. Smile)
