Delighted to report that the very friendly dog we featured yesterday afternoon on our website was recognised by her owner sometime later. The appreciative owner contacted the number indicated and was very glad to discover that it was in fact the family dog which featured and which had been receiving truly wonderful care by the two kindhearted people who originally found the dog which had strayed to West End. So the dog is now back at home. A story with a happy ending at Christmas! It also demonstrates a further valuable advantage of a local website. Sincere thanks to All who helped on this occasion.

Seán Murphy has been diligently working on this special pre-Christmas programme and had the final editing almost completed when the editing programme being used developed a significant fault out of the blue.
