Some ladies had been befriended by a ruddy great big dog today over at the convent fields - a wolfhound or something, he had a collar and lead but no tag - they were going to report him missing. Anyone hear of an owner misplacing a wookie-sized mutt?

Was he brown? There's a lovely otterhound called Blue that leaves his owner a long way behind, I believe he lives in Antioch House in the bottleneck.
I first met him on boxing day a couple of years ago, he came down the High Street to watch (or join) the hunt, all on his own.

Hmmm. Don't know much about dog breeds, have checked some pics out on google and think it was more of an irish wolfhound.
You'd know if you'd lost him!

could try looking at www.doglost.co.uk and other such sites that list missing dogs in this area. Good luck

Hmmm a Mischievous wolfhound nearly knocked us over recently, his name was Dominic which I thought was a great name, straight out of fraggle rock. Could be him! I'd call the local vets

The people who live at 1 Ham Lane have a dog that fits the description - v v large, friendly & actually a bit silly. Their owners would miss him immensely...and they are the nearest house to the convent field.
TDA - do you know where the dog is now? I can ring my friends at no. 1 to see if they've lost a dog...if you know the latest??

The great big dog is called Colin, he is a deerhound.
On Sunday afternoon he escaped from his garden and ran off to play in Convent Fields. He found lots of dogs to play with, especially 2 little lurchers.
The owners of the lurchers asked around and were told he lived in Ham Lane.
These lovely people brought him back to us.
He has just got a new collar and unfortunately the identity disk wasn't changed.
He has never got out before and hopefully never will again
We are very very grateful to the two people who brought him back to us and also very grateful to all you people for your concern.
Colin is none the worse for his adventure.

What a fantastic name for a dog!
Glad he is safe and reunited with his family

So glad he's back safe and sound. I love deerhounds, so I'm very jealous!

Colin is our second deerhound.
They are magnificent creatures, affectionate, obstinate and very lazy
They also need a king size bed, preferably yours.
We have 3 other dogs (not deerhounds), so we live as a pack of 6. The boss is a little collie cross called Bella.
We were very cosy in the snows.
