I am sorry to have to ask all anglers bringing, bitch dogs to the fishing to
let me know before they let them out so that I can take my randy Chocolate
Lab Murphy inside as at 11 years old, he is  now getting very upset running
after bitches and really can't cope anymore, although his brain can still
thinks he can, I say run, but as you know he can only walk slowly.
 
Thank you, Elizabeth    ( I Know you will all laugh at Murphy's spirit)
