Dont worry. We got our new cairn later in the day as his owner had died. He took our old dog's presents and enjoyed them.

I imagine yours was a clean living Cairn who ate healthily, and did not smoke or drink. And also avoided bitches who were after his kennel! 😀

He did not have a kennel. He shared a bedroom.

Just wondering did your Cairn have a good pension? She may have been interested in that besides the kennel and bedroom?

Somebody in my avenue keeps telling me about the life-span of dogs as well.  Spooky hey!   True story - he's an old geezer but I like him cos he also laughs at my jokes.

He could be related to Brian.

A man with a pipe stopped me in the street, said he was a plumber and could I direct him to Leek? Another man had a cap, said he was looking for a toy gun. Then a man with two dogs came along, said I needed a pension and 5,000,000. Last time I go out when there is a full moon.

No, not to Brian.   BUT ... he could be related to Brian's "Somebody"/"Someone"/"Some man in a pub".  They are on a nationwide mission to question, inform, grind everyone down with random and useless information.
