Looking for something totally different I came upon this newspaper picture from 1963 - Britain's first International Puppet Festival. It shows some of the puppeteers from the Arlekin State Puppet Theatre of Lodz, Poland meeting Famous Punch Prof Bert Codman.

Bert's dog Toby was a star. The Codmans had their own way of training dogs for the show and got brilliant results. This Toby was Bert's last. Toby was quite old and I asked Bert if he planned to get a puppy. Bert said that he would never train another. In fact when Toby died Bert only survived him by a few weeks.
It's good to squawk!
