Tim the Dog

Tim the Dog in Shakespeare and Hathaway Series 2 - Outrageous Fortune
Tim the Dog

Who is Tim the Dog? Mongrel Tim saved the life of businessman Theodore Athenaeus, and was named his sole heir in the will – which meant that this dog inherited a vast shipping fortune and is pampered beyond belief. He has a personal trainer, a nutritionist, a stylist, a lawyer, and a vet (played by Elinor Lawless), but all he wants to do is visit Theodore’s grave at the pet-friendly graveyard run by animal undertaker Leonard Baxter (Paul Clayton).

Now Tim seems to have run away from his life of luxury at the opulent Miranda Park – or is this a case of dognapping?
