Bell's whisky


There is an interesting advert on TV at the moment for Bell's whisky involving teaching a dog to play the bagpipes.
"See that, Paddy?" I said to the small brown canine lying on his cushion near the television. "How about you having a go at that?"
No reaction.
"After all," I continued, "You are half Border Terrier, so your ancestors are from the area near Scotland.. It should be in your genes, boy!"
Still no reaction. He's not even looking at the advert!
Seems we still have a long way to go with this training lark...

  1. Previous pictures suggest that Paddy is exactly the right size to be made into a set of bagpipes. You'd blow through the tail and make tunes via the fingerholes on one of his front legs. That'd teach him for chasing cats!

  2. Very inventive, YP. Much more so than Keith's dark mutterings about 'roast brown dog' for Christmas. :)

  3. I can just imagine Paddy's total indifference to your suggestion! Flighty xx
