3. You're now capable of running the London Marathon after all that extra exercise you're getting.
4. You're guaranteed to get a hero's welcome home every day.
5. They just want to be good boys and girls...
6. Except for when they're 'helping out' in the garden
7. Did we mention they love their food?
