Of hogs and hounds

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

IN re­sponse to the letter from Lady Mcalpine (Au­gust 30), I wanted to let you know about my lovely old golden re­triever, Sap­per, who used to bring a hedge­hog in most evenings. The hedge­hog was al­ways un­harmed and it was me who had to put on gar­den­ing gloves and take it back out­side. Dear old Sap­per lived to be 17, was never vac­ci­nated, sur­vived be­ing run over by the vicar and was fed on scraps of meat and bones from the fam­ily butcher.
