Kevin’s car had to go into the garage in Emsworth today for its MOT so I took my camera with me when I went to collect him in case I saw Scrabblehound again. Scrabblehound is the rather elderly dog who sits outside the boatyard opposite the garage and she’s featured on my blog once before
. She was pacing up and down the pavement this morning and seemed in a much mellower mood than the last time I said hello to her – despite her senior citizen looks she can still be quite a noisy guard dog! There’s always a sign up on the boatyard railings letting passers by what she’s been up to lately and today it told of a recent close encounter with the law. Apparently the local dog warden was about to take her away, assuming she was a stray. Thankfully Scrabble’s owner spotted her imminent abduction and politely pointed out that she’s been sitting on that spot for the last eleven years!
