All that sounds good to me except verse 7 line 3 "About this 'ere dog"

I feel very strongly that it isn't "about" but "Aw bowt" - "I bought" (in my area usually pronounced "A bowt")

I'm not translating here - this is my first language and I use the phrase "aw bowt" very regularly. (As in, "Aw bowt yon book o' words an' they worn'd reet")

All the best,

Weasel
