Tam Cowan: Paws for growler howlers.

Byline: Tam Cowan

HERE'S a shaggy dog story guaranteed to put a smile on Jim Traynor's torn coupon.

A young man arrives at his girlfriend's 10-storey flat to take her to the pictures.

While she's getting dressed, he picks up a rubber ball and starts playing fetch with her wee dog.

Unfortunately, the door to the balcony is lying open and ...

disaster ... the ball bounces out the door, over the ledge and the poor wee dog follows it.

His girlfriend appears a few minutes later. 'Listen darling,' he says, 'have you noticed your dog's been acting very depressed lately?'

No? OK, what about the Alsatian that went to place an advert in his local paper.

He took out a blank form and wrote: 'Woof, woof, woof, woof, woof, woof, woof, woof, woof.'

'That's only nine words,' said the assistant. 'You can write another 'woof' for the same price.'

'Don't you think that would be a little bit silly?' replied the dog.

Ach, suit yourselves...
