This is Anna, Andy and Sue’s lovely dog. She lists her spare time activities as, a.) being an active member of the canal society work party (5 per cent), b.) observing the canal society work party (10 per cent) and c.) sleeping (85 per cent).

When she is involved in a.) and ‘in the zone’, she can sniff out a discarded can below the waterline and at the command of ‘Winalot’ will bring it to the canalside. You may think I exaggerate……

…but here is the evidence. Go on, enlarge it if you don’t believe me.

It’s definitely a ‘Strongbow’. It is, really.

Sometimes, though, a good piece of chewy wood tastes so much better.
