BBC News - Axel the dog is thatcher's rooftop companion
A thatcher's seven stone rescue dog goes everywhere he goes - even up on rooftops when he is at work thatching.
Axel has to be carried up and down the ladders, but both owner and dog seem perfectly happy with the arrangement.
And I have to add, thatching looks like a TOUGH JOB. But wow, does it look neat!

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his leader, his love. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. Unknown
They sometimes put features on the ridge - like corn dollies !
He should put a corn Labrador on all of his ridges !
What a wonderful story and what a FABULOUS dog! Absolutely gorgeous, and what a temperament! LOVE THIS!

Great story, and what a strong man to be lugging him up and down the ladder. Too bad he couldn't teach him to climb the ladder. 7 stone approx 100lbs?
Looks dangerous to me
That's a wonderful story. The thatching does look amazing. The thatching itself seemed to be several inches thick. What is the foundation?
Great story. Beautiful dog.
