This shaggy dog story with happy ending warms the soul

Editor's Viewpoint

Published 24/11/2015

It reads like a Disney film script - couple break up, family dog is given away, couple get back together, spend year looking for dog, and finally find him just before Christmas.

But this is no shaggy dog story. It really happened, and, astonishingly, the dog seems to bear no ill-will to the couple who had originally given him away, making himself at home the minute he arrived back in the house despite the lengthy absence.

And just to show that man can be a dog's best friend, his owner has sold his PlayStation to pay for a heated kennel and run for the dog. Now, that really is the spirit of Christmas, make no bones about it.
