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, possibly 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.)
