David ... we're not daft ... we know that scenes are planned, story boarded, scripted, rehearsed and filmed probably several times. I think it's amazing how co-operative the robin is.
Like a lot of people, Monty gardens with his dogs, a lot of the viewers like seeing them. My assumption is that, given that Nigel has had some health problems, the Don family wanted to get a younger dog rather than feel totally bereft when Nigel eventually goes to that great field of tennis balls in the sky. If you want to think differently, so be it.
