Elsewhere on The Forum, @TheWalrusWasBrian barked,

We need a Martha appreciation thread. We gotta give the fluffy doggy some more love on this forum. In fact, I say we start an official fan club!

Feel free to discuss Martha and any other pets/animals related to The Beatles. I'm not sure how much there is to be discussed, but I've been pleasantly surprised by The Forum in the past...

I don't think that was his, it was never mentioned that he had a dachshund by anyone close to him and that photo looks like it was taken on holidays. It was probably some randomer's dog. 

 

That's not to say he didn't own dogs:

He was definitely more of a cat person though.

Yes, I'd wager that dog had somewhat more to do with the scrawny lad on the right ahdn_george_06 knowing Harrison Jr's penchant for canines.

Someone must now mention John's love of cats. I take it upon myself. Here ya go: http://www.catanna.com/johnlen.....nscats.htm

^I don't actually know its name which is quite sad but Dhani is very much a dog-person. As far as I know of, he hasn't owned a cat at all since the early 2000's.

But we do have this lovely photo

Hmmm....never before have I been jealous of a cat....I guess today is the day!

For those of you newer to The Forum, you may not know that our dog has a Beatley name. When Zag & I were searching for a dog to rescue, we were looking for a male. I was going to name him Malcolm after Mal Evans. Then, a female dog at a rescue shelter stole our hearts. We brought her home and I renamed her Lily after Mal's wife.

Love that dog...heart

Here's some pics of John with his pet dog and cat (the cat was apparently called Pepper, which is a nice coincidence). Anyone know the name of the dog?

Actually, I think that was Salt. He had black and white cats called Salt and Pepper, and if I recall, the white one was Pepper and the black one Salt.

I love that even Paul's dog is notorious. I like the moment in the Free As A Bird video when a sheepdog runs past. It is a nice little reference to Paul's dog and of course Martha My Dear

Knowing Paul it could well be Martha's great-great-great (keep going) grandpup. One of Martha's descendants, Arrow, was on the 'Paul Is Live' album from 1993.
