Olive, Mabel & Me
'Warm, funny, touching, uplifting' – CLARE BALDING
In a year like no other, the antics of two beautiful Labradors, Olive and Mabel – along with hilarious commentaries by Andrew Cotter – lightened the darkest days of lockdown. With nearly 90 million views on social media, Olive and Mabel’s videos have resonated with dog lovers around the world.
Now, OLIVE, MABEL & ME tells the heart-warming story of Andrew’s two famous Labradors. Olive – sensible, measured but always keen to roll in something she shouldn’t. Mabel – endearing, slightly scatty but game for any adventure. Their star quality has taken the internet by storm and continues to give us all a much-needed treat in tough times.
Beautifully written, touching and laugh-out-loud funny, this is not only the story of Olive and Mabel but also the story of the love we have for our dogs and the boundless joy they bring us each and every day.

Andrew Cotter is one of the most recognisable voices in sports broadcasting as a leading commentator on the BBC’s golf, rugby, tennis and athletics coverage.
He started his career in local radio in Scotland before moving to the BBC in London in 2000. He has also worked for Sky, BT Sport, ITV, Channel 4, ESPN and Eurosport.
Originally from Troon in Ayrshire, Andrew has a degree in French and Philosophy from the University of Glasgow and his own modest sporting success extends to representing Scottish Schools at golf, helping them to lose comfortably to England.
He now lives in Cheshire and as you can see from some of his pictures and videos on Twitter, YouTube and Instagram, when not covering some of the world’s great sporting events he’s often to be found up a mountain, handing out dog treats.
