Martha My Dear
In 1965 soon after buying his house on Cavendish Avenue, Paul McCartney bought his first pet, an Old English sheepdog puppy. He named the dog Martha.
"She was a dear pet of mine. I remember John being amazed to see me being so loving to an animal. He said, 'I've never seen you like that before.' I've since thought, you know, he wouldn't have. It's only when you're cuddling around with a dog that you're in that mode, and she was a very cuddly dog." -Paul McCartney
She was seen everywhere with Paul. She appeared in the Strawberry Fields Forever video and was with Paul at The Beatles' last photoshoot at Tittenhurst.
