    L/S of John and Mary Holmes, dressed in kilts and walking towards us with some puppies in their arms; they walk through a goat enclosure and onto a lawn; the puppies' mother walks with them. They set the puppies down on the ground with their mother; they are very cute, creamy-coloured and look rather like Labradors.
