The third of the limericks about cats and dogs that was suggested as the subject of a limerick.

My mate acquired a dog as a pet,
Which vanished the day after we met,
He searched high and low,
From Bridgend to Dunmow*,
Then found he’d been handed in at the vet!

* Bridgend, a town in South Wales, Great Dunmow, known as Dunmow, a town in Essex, in the east of England, a distance of 216.8 miles.
