Puppy Tails.

And from Drumlanrig again, "Former BBC correspondent Kate Adie, below, was in Edinburgh last week to talk about her new book, Into Danger. As the title suggests, the book explores why it is that many people appear willing to put themselves in harm's way. This led her into a non-too-flattering anecdote about former Presiding Officer of the Scottish Parliament, Sir David Steel who, Adie revealed, once gave a gift of a puppy to the reviled Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. The dog in question was so beloved by the old Romanian it had its own food tester to prevent it being poisoned."
