His Master's Boot. Only one man can fill these shoes

His Master's Boot. Only one man can fill these shoes. And that's the man Bootsie is waiting for - his missing master. Meanwhile, the two-year-old mongrel guards the shoes with his life. Bootsie was found alone with the shoes at Charing Cross station in London on Tuesday (5-10-76). It was the middle of the morning rush-hour and the rail terminus was filled with hurrying commuters. But whenever anyone put a foot near the leather slip-ons, Bootsie barked furiously. When police tried to catch him, he bolted with the shoes in his mouth. Eventually, though, he was captured and taken - still grimly holding the shoes - to the dog's home at Battersea. There he sat patiently on Tuesday night. Not eating. Not playing. Just guarding. "No one could guard the Crown Jewels any better, " said a spokesman at the home. "His loyalty to his master is unbelievable. We only hope it's justified. If he isn't claimed or give a new home in seven days, he'll have to be destroyed. And that would be a pity." October 1976 P006173
