The Ships Dog, a chihuahua called Banjo.

A well travelled faithful companion, he's been seen riding pillion on motorbikes, shotgun on pushbikes, cadging a lift on marina trolleys and knows which dinghy to hop into for his ride home.
Generally happy to be part of the human zoo, he's been known to take exception to a random selection of people and animals. Their ankles are the object of his wrath. He alone knows why.
Also a keen plane spotter, he always keeps an eye on the sky.
