In December 1970, Hobo the clown played host to a number of friends for Christmas Dinner at a home run by the Royal Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA).  Hobo’s guests enjoyed a menu of biscuits, dog-meat, turkey gravy-sauce-and chocolate-drops. 

Last to arrive was Blog, a mongrel, complete with Christmas-hat. Blog was also the last to leave.
