There’s been a little run of dog sightings on Central Belt Shuffler recently. Here’s another:
Girl and dog are on the platform – she, aged 6 or so, in denim dungarees, the dog, black and white, with floppy ears.
The dog won’t step into the train, so her dad tells her to pick the dog up. She bundles the dog under her arm, then sits in a seat with it in her lap.
She smiles. The dog looks happy.
Because of the shape of the dog’s ears, girl and dog seem to have the same triangular hairstyle.
The dog licks the train ticket.
She puts him on the seat, and tucks into a sandwich.
The dog looks out of the window. We pass over the Clyde.
