Dougal the Airedale Terrier is really the dog’s bollocks in Sinclair household

A delighted dog owner was thanking his lucky stars for the day he bought Airedale Terrier, Dougal, as a present for his wife.

Now Jeff Sinclair has plenty of cause to pamper the precious pooch for he insists that Dougal picked the six numbers he used to scoop the £9,670,000 triple-rollover jackpot in this weekend’s Lotto draw.

A delighted Mr Sinclair said: ‘I was filling out my ‘lucky line’ in the newsagents as usual when Dougal started looking at me in a funny kind of  way. Next thing he jumps up and grabs the slip from my hand and shreds it to ribbons.

I was cross with him to begin with but then I watched in astonishment as he picked up a another slip, gripped the  pen in his little paw and marked off a new line.

‘Well I just thought why not give them a whirl? So I did. And do you know, I could have sworn that Dougal cocked his head to one side and winked at me as I handed the two quid over to the newsagent.’

Jeff went on to tell how he watched the draw that night in total jaw-dropping disbelief as Dougal’s line ‘came up’.

‘He’s a marvel,’ laughed a delighted Jeff ‘We’re gonna get the little fella a diamond encrusted collar for his trouble’ added the nation’s newest multi-millionaire.

When asked for a comment Dougal just said ‘Woof woof!’ and carried on chewing an old bedroom slipper as if nothing remarkable had happened.
