Acting in his own self-interest no doubt, this dog was posing on top of the wall to draw attention to the donation bucket. Down the street, an van belonging to the Tobermory Otter Fund was parked. There was a slot in the side of the van where you could drop donation money. To draw attention to it, they had a fake otter hanging off the side of the van. It did draw attention, but not to the extent the live dog model did. One of the biggest issues they have with the otters on Mull is the number that get run over in the roads every year. Perhaps they should have put that stuffed otter under the wheel of the van. That would have certainly drawn more attention.
