25th January 2005Dogs at Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift
By Tony Ashford
I've read tit-bits here and there about two dogs in particular in the battles - one called Pip and the other called Lion. Does anybody know if the stories are true and do youb have any info? Would very much appreciate any details or any site I can research myself.

There was no Pip (TWOTS invention) but the other 'doggy heroes and survivors' have been very well covered earlier on this forum. Just search back a bit.

Thanks for the reply Julian whybra - I'll start looking.
