It quickly became clear that this warm, likeable and funny gentleman also had a quiet, steely determination. And he sailed across the line.

We've all got that one person we had a crush on when we were at school. That one person who stays indelibly printed on our mind and makes us feel weird every time we think about them for the rest of our lives. The person that will forever be fifteen years old to us, even though they must have grown up too.

This summer, we decided to do a road trip around the UK. Jake hopped in the back of the car, all of us prepared to rough it in a tent; we had no idea that so many hotels were dog friendly - our "working" dog ended up living the high life at some of the UK's finest hotels! It got me thinking: given the choice, where would dogs go on holiday?
