"The Loaded Dog" is a humorous short story by the Australian writer Henry Lawson. The plot concerns three gold miners and their dog.
The Gleniffer Press of Paisley and Wigtown was founded in 1967 by Helen and Ian Macdonald as a hobby private press, producing home and business stationery.
By the early 1970s, the press became noted throughout the world for making miniature books and was active in this field until 2007, when it closed after 40 years. By then it had produced 57 different titles.
The Macdonalds were among the founding members of the Miniature Book Society, which still thrives to this day. Helen and Ian were elected honorary members of the society on their retirement.
