The Watchdog - "A Tail of a long lost Skill"


SKIRLIE AND BEEL WERE WALKIN’ ALONG THE PIER IN YARMOOTH AT THE WEEK END FIN THEY WIR JINED BY A MANNIE BOLONGIN’ TAE THAT FAMOUS FISHIN TOON. THE CONVERSATION GOT ROON TAE THE SUBJECT O’ DOGS AND THEMANNIE TELT THEM A’ ABOOT THIS DOG THEY HAD ABOORD THE BOAT FA WIDNA LET ONYBODY INSIDE. THE MANNIE KEPT BLAWIN ON ABOOT HIM TILL BEEL AND SKIRLIE GOT FED UP AND SAID TAE HIM, C’MON THEN YOU HAD BETTER SHOW US THIS ANIMAL.

PROOD AS PUNCH THE MANNIE TOOK THEM DOON ONTAE THE BOAT AND FIN THEY GOT TAE THE GELLEY SURE ENOUGH THE DOG STARTED BARKIN’ AND GAUN MENTAL INSIDE THE GELLEY. WHAT DID I TELL YOU SAID THE MANNIE, NOBODY WILL COME NEAR WHEN HE STARTS BARKING. BEEL TURNED TAE SKIRLIE AND SAID GIE’S THAT STOPPER (A SHORT PIECE OF ROPE FOR TYING FLOATS ONTO NETS) HANDIN’ BEEL THE STOPPER SKIRLIE TELT THE MANNIE TAE STAND OOTO’ THE WYE. BEEL OPENED THE GELLEY DOOR AND SHUT IT AHIN HIM.

MEANWHILE THE MANNIE WIS GAUN FRANTIC INCASE THE DOG ATTACKED BEEL AND DID HIM ONY HERM, BUT HE NEEDNA HAVE BOTHERED EFTER TWA MEENITS O’ SQUEELIN’ AND BARKIN THERE WIS COMPLETE SILENCE, NOO THE MANNIE WIS GAUN FEEL WINNERIN FIT HIS DOG HAD DEEN TAE BEEL.
