Couldn't resist this, with being the village paper chap. When one particular morning, as I am quietly putting the paper through the flap, there was a terrific pounce at the door and obviously gave a startled reaction from me, it came from what was almost absolute silence, and then the snatch and growling and tugging and pulling of the newspaper being dragged through the letterbox, can only picture in my mind what it could have been like on the other side of that door with, growling, grating pointed sharpened teeth !! Just glad I got my fingers owt tu way quick time!!
