    They will probably want to see **** but I'll start by giving it * and see if it ends up as a **.

    Fair play to them, at the very least they have got some excellent publicity. Good luck to them.

    Only if you are a better barterer than me, I would go in trying to barter for golf balls and end up accidentally trading Tilly-Miss.

    I think if I tried to shop in an Egyptian bazaar I would end up selling myself into slavery.

    I think all puppies should come with a warning. One day, this adorable little darling will wade through mud to dive into ditches, and on the way back, roll in fox crap, cow crap or whtever, then see a rabbit or summat and set off a full tilt to do it all over again. Don't think getting a small breed will help, it won't. Spoken from experience, GSD, Jack Russell, Bedlington, lurcher, greyhound or mutt, it makes no nevermind, it will happen.

    Pubs are a hobby, real ale is a passion. Oh, and like me dogs, fear no evil..........
