If I were a typewriter, I'd have German engineering, an Australian work ethic and a couple of stray Russian letters on my keyboard. In other words, my doggy DNA test claims I'm 75% German Shepherd, 15% Aussie Cattle Dog, 10% Husky. Not quite as advertised by the SPCA - a "Shepherd/Alaskan Malamute mix" - like the hidden gem of a machine described as purely decorative or, worse still, for parts. Like some typewriters, I know how it feels to be old, discarded and in bad shape before being joyfully re-discovered by owners who give me pride of place and tell everyone else how lucky they are to have scored a special guy like me. 100% Good Boy.
