A bit of a classic
8 August 2000 | by (Coventry England) – See all my reviews

I remember this series so well. I was 5 years old. It seems there are no prints of this series. I think the dog was called Rusty. The show just had class and Peter Lawford, the star. Anyone with information please make contact
