Well, Cragie died fairly recently, and he was found in his studio, sitting in a chair having died of a heart attack, with his last two dogs standing faithfully beside him, waiting for him to wake up, or - more likely - mourning.
His dogs have been taken into custody by two friends of Cragie, and - although I knew they now live somewhere in the Bath area - I haven't yet seen them walking the streets, and I have never met the two chaps.
Well, it turns out that the two young men who now look after Cragie's dogs are going to come to the opening of Her Indoor's exhibition, which is on the evening of the 20th November - a saturday. I really hope they bring along the Beddies - such famous dogs would be a real asset on the evening.
Isn't it funny how things go around in circles like that?
