About the Author:
Georgina Montagu has written this book to combine three of her favourite things: dogs, people and interiors. Purely a Standard Poodle person, she has had two: Albert, the therapy dog at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, and Rollo, a former show dog. Georgina has lived and worked all over the world from the cities of London, Tokyo, Paris and San Francisco to the desert and mountain wilderness of the American southwest and – appropriately for a dog-lover – the Labrador coast, where the sea is frozen for five months of the year. She has worked for The Sunday Times Magazine and The World of Interiors, as well as for several Japanese art, architectural and fashion magazines. She has two daughters, Willa and Freya, and currently lives in London.
