THEY must be barking mad! It truly was a family affair of the canine variety in Branscombe on Sunday for a triple birthday celebration. More than 20 dogs, including eleven members of the same family met at the Sea Shanty to toast Border Collie sisters, Polly, Pip and Dave's fifth birthday. Their mum, Skye, Uncle Finlay, Dave's 'husband' Marby, and her four puppies, Chieno, Shanty, Trigger and Misty were among the guests of honour. Organised by Skye's owners, Jill and Tony Johnson, the pooches were even treated to a dog food birthday cake complete with biscuits and candles. Rich Fuell, who owns Dave and Trigger, said: "They were all pretty well behaved and they looked like they enjoyed the cake!
