    This weeks Logic

    This weeks puzzle.
    I shall be quite busy today so won't be able to check as often as last week.
    Tips - write down what you know and then phone Doctor Watson !



    Astra-Sport's four boys have done their best to make the dog situation at the meeting confusing. Each of the four, their names Alec, Bob, Charlie, and David, owns two dogs, and each has named his dogs after two of his brothers. Each boy has, in consequence, two doggy namesakes.

    Of the eight dogs, three are cocker spaniels, three are terriers, and two are dachshunds. None of the four boys owns two dogs of the same breed. No two dogs of the same breed have the same name. Neither of Alec's dogs is named David and neither of Charlie's dogs is named Alec. No cocker spaniel is named Alec, and no terrier is named David. Bob does not own a terrier.


    What are the names of the dachshunds, and who are their owners?
