Clever Dogs in Rugby

Featured Posts

Not only can dogs in Rugby now read about 10 signs telling them they aren't allowed to poo, 

There  is also one central pillar telling them they can and where their owners can collect it from.

I came past those signs, heading north, today. Previous passings have had me fuming so much at the no mooring signs that I failed to notice the no pooing signs for dogs. Today I did notice one of them so perhaps I´ve calmed down a bit.

That used to be moorings but so shallow you could hardly get on. I think the reason for no mooring is due to the integrity or otherwise of the bank. It runs above the retail park and if the canal breached there ( there are stop plank grooves in the bridges) they would have to have a flood sale ...

Besides I wouldn't moor overnight in brownsover. I used to work for the police in rugby in the 1990s..in modern political speech..brownsover had the highest 'client' base in those days , I used to boat through incognito at night wearing dark glasses and a false beard in case the locals recognised me.

Could do with an amalgamated sign at the Braunston locks, 3 separate bollards had piles of fresh dog shit around them this morning.

Well that was only nearly 30 years ago, I don't expect things change much.

I´ve got no particular desire to moor there overnight, although it would be useful as an option of last resort late in the day, but I do sometimes want to stop for an hour or two to stock up at Tesco. Quite often that is impossible with all the visitor moorings occupied.
