Fairway was a home where nine children lived happily in the care of their house parents, Mr and Mrs Glover. One day, a large St Bernard dog arrived and refused to leave. Enquiries failed to find his owner and the children named him Big Bernie. Bernie soon won all hearts, and the children hoped to keep him for ever.
