Labradors at home, at large, and at play

Dilly, Bumble, and Barnaby invite you to share their labrador world

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 couch, digging up plants, or chasing hens around the backyard, their irresistible charm means all is forgiven. Their exploits are followed by 50,000 people on Facebook, and they also appear on a calendar and a range of greetings cards. The dogs and their owner have even been seen on TV, 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, He is the author of Labradorable, and lives in Derbyshire, UK.
