The Dogs of Greenhill Farm has been going for almost a year now (the blog really started in March 2010, the earlier things were added later) and you watched Ben and Pip (almost) grow up… but what about the other four? What did they get up to, before they were famous?

Jack was born in 2002, and he grew up to be rather handsome.
And here he is in 2009:
Well, now you know what all of the dogs got up to before they were famous…
