This week RISKKO and I went ‘up-north’ to visit my parents in the Midlands and to let RISKKO play with his doggy pal Sid. Sid is known locally as the Batdog and it wasn’t until I saw the latest Batman film ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ that I realised why. The film had several shots of the home of Bruce Wayne (alias Batman) known as Wayne Manor. This is the same somewhat splended house that Sid lives in. Therefore it did not take a genius to work out that Sid was Bruce Wayne’s dog and the big house near to my parents home in Wollaton was actually Wayne Manor. That would certainly explain a number of strange noises coming out of the grounds at night time. Let me share with you some pictures from our visit.

The only things living on the secret Island apart from bats are the Special Forces trained guard-ducks like Daphne

It is not only the ducks who live near Wayne Manor, so do my parents John and Christine Duggleby. As next door neighbours they keep an eye on the Manor grounds when Bruce Wayne goes on extended 'Batman' excursions.

When RISKKO first arrived his old friend Rudolf the Reindeer was having a rest. He had had a very busy Winter delivering Christmas presents around the World.

Rudolf the Reindeer had an itch on his bottom that he just couldnt reach. The more he tried the more his nose became bright red. Fortunately his doggy friend RISKKO was an expert in scratching bottoms and soon Rudy's itch had gone

Once the annoying itch on his bottom was fixed Rudolf the Reindeer was ready for action. Bring me my sleigh!
