Cambuslang man Jack Phillips wi' his dug
 

 Jack Phillips was a six footer and was called "Big Jack" locally.  The Guide dog was called Volley ( after a Volleyball team who donated him to the Guide dog centre ) and he was Jack's first guide dog, he got him circa 1970.  He worked the dog until he was 12 years old, a long working life for a guide dog. Thereafter Jack's son Peter Phillips took him as a family pet until he died 4 years later.

                                                         and he would  reply  " I hope no' son or were baith in trouble
