Age is said to bring wisdom, but, sadly, this is no guarantee that we stop making stupid mistakes as we get older. DZ is no exception. In the last few years, among other poor decisions, he has used his teeth as a wire stripper on a live wire, and used a power saw on a ceiling panel that had an asbestos warning attached. He is currently carrying some minor scars from an unfortunate encounter with a motorcyclist. One of his offspring has commented that he has "more lives than a cat"

He is also not immune from gaffs in the area of social interaction. There is a lady who DZ is quiet close too. She has recently and relatively late in life for a congenital condition been diagnosed with hip dysplasia. DZ response to this news was perhaps a little tactless. "Oh," I said "I once had a dog with that problem". The lady asked me what treatment had been given for the condition. Perhaps DZ should have thought before answering. "There was nothing for it, we had him put down"
