Today, like I said, was the best I've played so far in the
And, yes, I'm doing well, so hopefully keep it up.
And the last British woman to win Wimbledon

I would be devo'd if they stole my chocolate.
These monkeys might be troublesome, but
they're also rare.
There are only 225 of them in Europe, and...
They're the last free ranging primates in the

He's brilliant at his job, but it's time for
Scrappy to retire, and a team are looking for his replacement.
So, what makes a good fire dog?
We like having cockers.
Cockers, easy to train, very intelligent, good with
And this is lightweight, we can boost him up all over the place
to do searches.
He's quite happy on a ladder with me.
And he will climb a platform as well, which allows us

or flats and that sort of
Well, the hunt is on, but it's not going to be easy finding a dog
that can fill Scrappy's fire boots.
