"Who is Norman?"
Voices: English for Secondary School

Not many Australian Old English Sheepdogs have a feature page in a
Swiss English high school text book.

But Norman does.

These 25 photos chart his loyalty, friendship and never-ending quest
for snacks over a year in the photographer's life.

Norman is every dog.
Norman is hungry.
Norman is just like you and me.


About the Author

Patrick Boland
mrbolano Sydney, NSW, Australia
I'm a freelance photographer working out of Sydney, Australia. I live in Summer Hill which is in the Inner West of Sydney, home of five thousand take away Indian and Thai restaurants. My wife and I have two gorgeous girls and one loving dog, Norman. You might have heard of him? He was featured in a Swiss English for High School text book. The internet is a weird place. I take lot of photos. I look forward to the day when I'm long gone and my relatives can no longer open the archaic file formats and just decide to delete them.
