“I was trying to take a picture and accidentally started a video. Suddenly people were watching and I realised that my dogs were giving a lot of joy to people.” Kerry understands the joy they bring; it was the same joy Max first gave him 12 years ago that he says saved his life. In 2006 his car was rear-ended by a lorry, leaving him with crippling back pain. He spent the following two years barely able to move, declining into a deep and seemingly irreversible depression. Then one day, having been persuaded by his wife of 22 years Angela to walk to the local shop to get some milk, he met Max. The then one-year-old poked his nose between the bars of a backyard gate and the two struck up an instant friendship.
