    We used to take our 3 legged dog out in sons old pushchair on our holidays when she got old and arthritic and couldn't walk very far. At least it got her out with us when we walked miles and she would just let us know when she fancied jumping out for a bit of a stroll.

    Got a few strange looks (especially from passing dogs ) and lots of photos taken of us, but she lapped all the fuss up :)

    If you look closely at my avatar you will spot she's quite happily sat strapped in her mothercare pushchair . We used to send son off in front with her , she looked quite cool in his hat and sunglasses ....:D

    A man driving a large silver car whilst also trying to take photographs of the McDonalds drive through on Eccleshall Rd. Maybe this belongs in the 'Examples of bad driving' thread!

    A loud yellow helicopter on the west of the town

    I believe it was looking for electricity with a divining/dowsing device

    No cable out there - just sodden fields

    I've recently seen a dog in Stafford without hind legs,by being attached to a set of rear wheels it appears to move along in a haphazard kinda way....... There is also the black dog that wunna budge from the bridge on Newport Road until it's watched a train go by...........
