Hammersmith is a ‘dog-borough’. Dog walkers and and trainers aplenty can be spotted in its many parks – and some of the pooches are even quite famous. One of them is Plum. She has her own
business cards, her own blog and recently brought out a book.
Together with her owner Emma, she enjoys going for long walks by the river and finding treasures when the tide is low. Emma prefers pieces of broken tiles whereas Plum has a thing for dead seagulls. When they are not walking, Plum likes to chill in her Cath Kidston basket while Emma writes children’s books.
