Hi, bit of a long shot, but I figured there will be people from Wigan here so worth a try.

 

I found this lad in Wigan on Saturday. I got in touch with Leigh Cats and Dogs Home, who picked him up. He looked happy and well looked after so I was hoping he would be back home rapidly, but I've just called them and no-one has claimed him. He was very friendly and greeted me when I called him, but he has no road sense and kept running into heavy traffic. I was terrified he'd be run over or cause a crash. I wish I could've done more but I was only up from London for the weekend, and the b&b wouldn't let him indoors (though they were very helpful in contacting the home). Please share if you know anyone in the area who may recognise him.

So who's going to be first to make a joke about dogs in Wigan????


Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

My lad's partner's daughter recently asked me if dogs once roamed in packs on our streets years ago. It's something that had been forgotten about because indeed the streets seem to be dog free, apart from when with owners. Also, white dog poo was once the norm, and difficult to detect in the snow!  :tongue:

What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss
It's only two humans being.

It was a fleece. I was a bit chilly, but I'd forgotten that it was compulsory to wear short sleeves at all times in Wigan on a Saturday night so it worked out OK. Saw a guy walking between pubs in full BARLA kit later that evening.

 

I tracked down the dogs owners by the way, as you were.
