A Dog's Dinner, 19th August 1963
In honour of his first birthday, dalmation Shawclough Buchaneer - known as Jasper - was given a slap-up birthday party, to which his master, cinema owner George Batty, invited all Jasper's friends - all with distinguished pedigree, of course, like Jasper. The guests, 12 of them, were invited by gilt edged invitation and were treated to liver, biscuits, bones, 10 pints of milk and, of course, a large birthday cake. There was no spotted dog on the menu!

Waiting for the bang!.
Lumbering delightedly in pursuit of the elusive spheres, the Bears at the London Zoo return to their cub days and gets a touch of the Christmas feeling when a few gaily coloured balloons are let loose in their enclosure.
All their hunting skill goes into stalking the balloons and animal passion of flashes out when the wind blows them out of reach. Making the balloons explode with a loud bang seems to be a favourite sport.
Photo shows, one of the Bears sinks its teeth into a balloon as another sniffs suspiciously. He's due for a shock when the balloon explodes.
