Angel takes a bow

Fabulous story in the Oxford Times today which makes me proud to be a greyhound.

Angel, a nine-year-old former racing greyhound, was having a good sniff in the undergrowth on a walk in Bourne Park, Ipswich, Suffolk - as we all love doing - when she sniffed out a case.

Owner Chris Laffin thought it was just rubbish at first - but when he checked it out, the case contained 11 antique violin bows.

And guess what!!!??? They were worth £110,000 and had been stolen from bow restorer Peter Oxley when he nodded off on a train between London and Ipswich earlier this month.

Mr Oxley's delighted and Mr Laffin's going to get the £5,000 reward that was offered for the bows' safe return. I bet Angel gets a treat too.

I hope Angel gets a very nice treat after that! She deserves it!
