Bionic Bob and (Biggles) Bear

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

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

“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.

“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.”
