This is a story of man's best friend in all his intelligent glory.
Archie the dog lost his owner on a train platform in Scotland. Poor Archie searched and searched but the human was lost. Archie didn't want to
participate in the long walk home, so he jumped on the train coming into the platform. We can assume Archie knew which train to jump on because he
certainly jumped off that train at the right spot, his own station. Amazing. I would like to buy that dog a beer.
He's been on that train before. I am convinced he knew it was the right one.
Closed-circuit television footage shows the dog waiting for his master at the station before watching the Aberdeen to Inverness train pull in.
He got out at the right stop, Insch, 12 minutes along the line, to the bemusement of signalman Derek Hope.
Two police forces, the national rail operating system and the local train service have all logged the incident.
I have a feeling that if that footage is released it will become an instant worldwide hit.
