I submitted this because I think it's a good photo.Man and Dog are both in tune and it is an ideal way of celebrating 50 years of friendship with Tom Whalley.As a schoolboy I was the Saturday help in the shop in The Wiend.I am now 65 and our friendship remains.

Oh that`s lovely! It looks like the two gentlemen are having an extremely intelligent conversation, and the Doggy has `pawsed` for thought!!

I remember him walking a puma through Wigan, not many people have done that hey? Was it is own pet? It seems unbeleivable now.

Fabulous, do I remember right that when I was a kid there was a parrot used to sit outside the shop above the door?

I too remember Mr.Whalley walking his puma in Wigan, I had a Saturday job in his shop.He also had a baboon called Lynn as I recall and a kinkajou called Kinky,around the same time.(pre 1969).
