GUIDE DOGS - "EVERY PENNY COUNTS"...
This dog and her two pups were featured in my
local newspaper recently. The 'doggy-bank' has sat
in my neighbourhood chemist's for many years, pos-
sibly even going as far back as the '50s or '60s. The
shop occupies larger premises than it did originally,
having moved a few units along in (I think) the
early '70s, into what used to be a cafe.
It's probably older than me, and I certainly
remember it from my early teenage years, but to
think it goes all the way back to my childhood (or
beyond) is a startling thought. I must remember to
deposit a coin or three the next time I'm in - after all,
every penny counts. My eyesight isn't as good as it
used to be, but I'm grateful for what I've got and
don't take it for granted. Next time you see
one of these 'banks', make a deposit.
(I'm sure you would anyway.)
