By Milo Sumner in New Photography on Sunday 31 August 2014

Some breeds of dog are unfairly stereotyped, and none more so that the pit bull. We look at a greyhound and think racing, associate a chihuahua with socialites and the west highland terrier with monopoly. None of these associations are negative and, more importantly, unlikely to affect the decision of a potential adopter.

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in Video on Friday 29 August 2014

Newsflash. Smoking is bad for you. Ok, we all knew that smoking isn’t exactly a great part of a healthy lifestyle, but many people are guilty of deceiving themselves about quite HOW badly it affects your body.
