Keeping the canine contingent entertained has always been a major part of the LBT's activities.  Mike Dredge reports.

'You may have noticed the odd red and yellow soft ball turning up at LBT, much to the joy of various dogs, and wondered who was the generous soul making these donations.  Mystery solved.  Missy found a nest of about half a dozen after last week’s rain, in a drain outlet near LBT.  Looks as if the drain originates somewhere near the Primary School.  Kids must be dropping the balls into the drain – they then magically re-emerge at LBT.  I’m doing some work with the Phys Ed teacher at the school, he confirmed they use these balls, so I’ll collect what I can and return them, probably thereby creating yet another DO loop.'
