The riotously humorous alongside got here Dylan takes up the place Foster's bestselling strolling Ollie left off, yet rather than one canines conundrum, he is obtained : Dylan, the outlaw, proves to be nearly untrainable; Ollie, feeling threatened, turns into more and more delinquent, and Foster is stuck within the heart brooding about why man's...

After the novelty of the regular leg-over with the younger model has faded away, has it ever been known for such an individual to be happy? No. Why?

It was the sight of Farid with his beautiful grey coat and his unfeathered, smooth ears, and with his relaxed and thoughtful attitude to go with the good looks, that inspired me to pursue an idea.

We left the house for five minutes to go round the corner where there is a patch of grass, to attend to toilet activities, or more likely not: he was loath to go until he really felt that he was ‘out’, that is ‘out’ in real nature. Back indoors he might have a little tinkle, on a rug, in secret somewhere, and then, to distract me from finding the evidence, demand that we play ball. We did that in the hall until he was knackered, which only took an hour.
