Scruff Checks It Out
Scruff is a man's dog. When he is at home (the Dingle Peninsula) he goes to work every day with Brendan. They drive a digger (backhoe to you North Americans) and Brendan reckons Scruff could handle it all by himself if it wasn't for his lack of opposable thumbs.
While he's here he goes to work with Bert. Today they were in the fields lifting trees. There is pipe-laying going on at the bottom of the lane and Scruff's ears pricked up when he heard the bump-bump-bump of a digger bucket, He trotted off down the lane to see if it was Brendan. When he saw that it wasn't he trotted back up and paid it no more mind.
So if you happen to get the length of an internet cafe, Trish and Brendy, be reassured that Scruff hasn't forgotten you.
