Hi willisanne.
re 28 kennelmaid. What you say is very good because if I have got it right..... 12. A cold owner composed this song of the saxifrage ...is 'London Pride' which is the collective name for a group of lions. So 'kennel' could be serving a similar purpose.
Does this help to convince you ?

I'm having seconds thoughts about my answer to 12.
Anagram of 1st 3 words gives name of song writer who composed a song called L----- P---- (another name for saxifrage I know) but the answer is a very tenuous link to cats and dogs. What does anyone else think or is there a better clue please.

Hi Winnie. I still think it is L..... P.... mainly because the P word is to do with lions and of course the alternative name for saxifrage

Hi haeremai18 Try these hints:-
37.start of harrass = h, unduly nag = anagram of nag and go from there
40 Is anagram of birds egg tea ( On line Chambers word wizard)
43. Google 'a curious incident'
44 is 4 consecutive letters in the clue written backwards
47.speechless = mute
61 try using cam'ERA C'ame + h (hunter)
63 Pool is a sport or game
64. anagram of 4,5,6,7,and 8th words
69 Google Miss Woodhouse for her first name +
sheep back = ram (backwards)
Re Chambers dictionary, they are a bit pricey - try second hand book shops or amazon maybe.

Thanks again Winnie. Am working on your clues and have got 43, 44, 64 and 69 but still struggling with others. Have used Chambers Word Wizard for BIRDSEGGTEA but it comes up with no anagram! Will have another go again tomorrow but will no doubt come back for your help if I may?

Hi Winnie. If you have a Chambers 10th edition, which I am sure you have, could you please give me the ISBN number? Amazon have very few Chambers but Play.com have several but they do not say which edition but do give an ISBN number. Onwards and hopefully upwards with your clues!!

Hi haeremai18 re Chambers dictionary 10th edition
It's ISBN is 0-550-10185-3. Hope you can get one .
Neville Mizen - author of the quiz does state that this dictionary is the main ( but not sole) source of reference for definitions .
I'm sure we will be in touch some more.
