WALKING WITH SAUSAGE DOGS
It's a long story...
Keeping pets is a lovely idea. When building a family, they complement the kids. But what happens when things get out of hand?
For writer and house husband, Matt Whyman, it's a case of catastrophe management in coping with four children and all the ill-advised animals amassed by his career wife, Emma.
Just as Matt gets to grips with managing her two maxed out minipigs, she falls for a miniature Dachshund - the kind of dog he wouldn't be seen dead with.
Hercules isn't big or clever, but Emma is determined. She'll do everything, she promises...
