Originally, The Labrador Pact was about twice as long as it is now. There were sub-plots and sub-sub-plots which never made the final version. There was even a love story between Prince and a mongrel called Gypsy which was turning a bit too Lady and the Tramp for my liking, only with the gender roles reversed.

Anyway, here are a few of the scenes which went for the snip, so to speak:

> Adam reads toddler Charlotte to sleep
> Missing teenager sub-plot
> Simon asks Adam to go running
> Hal doubts his looks
> Prince gets depressed
