Aw he looks just like Billy a lovely Welsh Springer who belonged to a sculptor and bronzecaster friend of mine - Billy would sit quietly beneath the wooden bench in the pub on a Friday evening, sneaking through to the tap room every now and then to refresh himself from the spillage trays beneath the barrels - until one evening when he got up ....... and fell over
On another occasion the friend had a big Christmas feast in the barn, using the furnace to cook the large turkey - everyone was served and ate well, and eventually, after a lot of Adnams bitter and telling of tales (well these were mainly sculptors and painters) second helpings were called for........ but the turkey was nowhere to be found - but Billy was found in his basket with a load of foil wrapping and some bones !!!! Fortunately he was none the worse for his greed, and a closer eye was kept on him at future Sculpture Feasts!!!
