Henley Top Dogs know how to stay cool
Published 27/06/14



HERE are two more entries to this year’s Henley’s Top Dog competition.

The chocolate Labrador belongs to David Evans, from Henley, who says: “I’m not sure if he’s Henley’s Top Dog but this is Biggles (Bear really) checking out the ladies in his soft top.”


Bob is a rescue Jack Russell owned by Janet Wood, also from Henley.

She says: “He was thrown against a wall at 12 weeks old and, when the owner couldn’t afford the specialist surgery to pin his shoulder, she handed him to a rehoming centre.

“The charity could not afford the expensive surgery either but their vet offered to ‘have a go’ with the understanding that Bob would have to make do with three legs if he couldn’t fix it.

“‘Bionic’ Bob is a year old now and can outrun all dogs with the exception of whippets and greyhounds.

“His best friend is Cat-Mandu who is also ‘second hand’. They spend a few hours each day wrestling each other and playing hide and seek, the likes of which can be seen on YouTube.”

Below is a video of Bob and CatMandhu wrestling.
