my nephew's Border Collie -- Angus --, who has been looking over my shoulder whilst I have been reading your post, has asked me to pass this message on to your dog:
Woof! Woof woof woof. Woof woof. Woof woof woof woof.
Woof. Woof woof. Woof.Woof woof. (and 12 rapid tail wags)
I couldn't agree more!
Hey Tom, my 'Boy' got very excited when I read him this post. [My pc is too high for him to see]. He has asked me to relay this message to you for Angus! Hi Angus, I'm pleased to meet you too! It's good to know I had a bro somewhere to help me support Rafa, as my sister Yum Yum has absolutely no interest in tennis! [She's a snooker fan herself]. I feel our combined 'woofs' helped spur him on! No....sorry bro, I haven't noticed a slightly used juicy bone laying around in my neck of the woods, but I hope you find it soon. If you happen to have a 'mangy cur' living next door to you [as I have], then that's where I'd be looking first if I were you! Grrrrr! Unfortunately, some of your message got lost in translation! My human 'Caz' is ok on the reading, but her 'tone' and 'inflection'
..........'nuff said! I think I got the gist though! Hey buddy.......12 rapid tail wags.......comin' right back atcha! slurp!
