I was looking for a specific photograph last night and came across this, sent to me a couple of years ago by Peter Edwards. It was taken by him in a remote bothy in the far north of Scotland.
It shows Reuben utilising a young Dougal as a blanket whilst at the same time being used himself as a comfy pillow. Reuben has met Dougal a few times now and I have to say they have become the best of friends. So, why the picture? It took many years of gently persuading my wife to allow a dog to join the household. With that duly accomplished I am now working on getting permission for a second canine to join the Bongo family. I reckon that Reuben could do with some company as he starts his journey into middle age. After doing my dog rescue bit I really would like to bring a dog up from a puppy, probably of the Labrador / Labradoodle persuasion. Pete, if Dougal ever becomes a dad……………………..
