Lord Primrose Agar wagered one of his tenant farmers, Orlando Harrison, that his border collie pup Jip would outlive the 94-year-old Harrison. The prize would be eighty-two acres of up and down, near Driffiels in East Yorkshire. Thirteen years later, having buried his dog, Agar shook hands with Orlando and conferred on the Harrisons a century of struggle.
