The wee boy is me ... probably taken around 1957.

The dog is Billy.

Here is another one of Billy (just for Westie).

Billy was a big part of our family. He was a Heinz with a decent amount of Old English Sheepdog in him. Like most mongrels, he was very fit and healthy and, indeed, lived till he was 16.

My lifestyle at the moment is not conducive to having a dog (it would not be fair to the dog) so I have to live vicariously through our neighbours wee Beagle ... also called Billie (different spelling as she is a girl). A lovely wee dog who would lick any burglars into submission.

Well, I can't resist showing off my beautiful boy...and our cat, Alby, who looks as though butter wouldn't melt in his mouth but loves to ambush the kids at every opportunity. Still, he puts up with a lot too - his favourite game is being pushed around in the doll's pram, he jumps in and waits for one of the girls to push him up and down the corridor!

I love the names you've given your cats Lynnski. Our little Heather (3) insisted on calling the sheep we had for a couple of weeks Polly even though it was a 'he' sheep. She wouldn't be moved - Polly it was.

On my nightly walk roon the closes to get some fresh air in the peace of dark I passed by this lovely lovely pup. A chocolate labrador. My, I couldn't keep my eyes off him in the dark of night. He was magnificent bounding all over the place in the snow.

So I remarked to the owner, a young man of about 20ish .."how gorgous"

About two minutes down the road he shouted back..."were you talking about me or my dog"......brilliant to hear that in the quiet of the night.
