Top dog Lonan generously gifts whisky to owner
Lonan the Spaniel was celebrating this week after winning the West
Coast Review magazine’s sudoku competition. The top dog was presented with bottle of Oban whisky. Lonan’s owner, Martin Wilson of Oban, who completed the puzzle but filled in his dog’s name on the entry form, will do his part drinking the single malt, while four-year- old Lonan, named after Glen Lonan, continues to enjoy chasing balls in the mud. Collecting his prize at
The Oban Times office, the 62-year- old former teacher apologised for Lonan’s muddy paws and explained that, since he [Martin] won the fiendishly difficult sudoku challenge a year ago, he’s been generously entering Lonan instead – and putting his brother’s dog on raffle tickets.
