Timaru: The dog

One thing I forgot to mention about this B&B is the dog. It's a huge slavering beast of a thing that greets you at the door and...

It's actually a small black and old spaniel which also happens to be totally blind. It wanders around the place gently bumping into things. I have been fairly impressed by its navigation skills but it does remind me of a battery operated toy I had years ago which was a bus with a set of rotating wheels under it. It would move forward and bump into something and then the rotating wheels cause it to change direction.

The dog operates in exactly the same way only without the wheels.
