    Benson, Oxfordshire.

    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.

    Commentator tells us they are the only litter in this country of an Italian breed of dog called Maremma; their fur looks very fluffy. M/S of John and Mary watching proudly. Various shots of the puppies feeding from their mother.

    M/S of a little dog with big ears looking from an open window; C/U of a goat pushing it's nose through a wire fence and baring it's teeth.

    Various shots of the puppies playing with some string. One little puppy bites the tail of another. A black and tan cat watches from a closed window. C/U of a pup running into the camera! Aw - very sweet!

    Note: mute neg appears to be quite scratched. Mary and John Holmes appear in CP 067 - 'Trick Dogs' and CP 286 - 'Animal Farm'. On file is correspondence about the story and cameraman's notes on the pups.
