How a Beatle Lives, Part 2: Ringo Starr — So Who's Afraid of Dogs and Babies! (Especially Babies)

Maureen Cleave, The Evening Standard, 11 March 1966

RINGO LIVES in Weybridge at the bottom of the hill of which John lives on top. His house, too, is large and Tudor-ish. It has an enormous garden with sloping lawns and trees and crocuses opening flat in the hot spring sun; a goldfish pond, a tree house, and old air-raid shelter, a kennel for Daisy and Donovan the Folk Dog, his two Airedales; a washing line with an old tin can hanging from it. This is for Ringo and Maureen, his wife, to shoot at with their air guns. They do most things together.
