Sir Cliff Bitchard was influenced by Elvis Pedigree and dominated the Bristish dog music scene in the 1960's. Bitchard's singles including 'We don't Walkies anymore', 'Devil Dog Woman' and 'Mistletoe and Whine' helped make him the third best selling dog in the history of the canine music charts. In the 1970's he fronted his own television show, 'It's Cliff Bitchard' and went on to be the first dog recording artist to be knighted, becoming Sir Cliff Bitchard in 1995. From mid November you'll be able to buy Sir Cliff Bitchard and others from Paperchase. Until then, you can get them from my Etsy shop....
