A former Cambs Times reporter who now lives in France has written an unforgettable tail about her Leonberger puppy.

Wendy Nottage, originally from Chatteris, decided to move to the Lot countryside in south-west France and renovate an old stone cottage.

Her adorable puppy Juno also came along for the ride and became the ‘village celebrity’.

Wendy writes as Amelie Jones for this story of a giant-sized puppy with a giant-sized character.

Wendy explained: “This was our dream - at 50 years old to take on a new and exciting adventure and Juno came too, enriching every moment with his quirky, naughty character.

“Everyone clamoured after our gentle giant - it was quite normal to pop into a shop, leaving Juno sitting in the back of our Land Rover, his massive lion-sized head hanging out of the tailgate and return to find a queue of people around the rear of our car just full of questions.

“How many dogs are so extraordinary that men flying over our heads in hot air balloons, stare and point, craning their necks intent on getting a better view of the biggest dog they have ever seen?”
