Following the incident with the dog there's a nice, new, shiny, expensive CI-105-6 installed under the aircraft. The DME still doesn't work, although it has been showing signs of trying. I am now hoping that the problem is a simple wiring fault, with perhaps some of the circuit going to earth where it shouldn't. The wiring in question is under a shelf which houses the ELT and stormscope and will require the battery box to be removed for access - a task to be done during the annual I think.
So the dog didn't fix my DME, but she did make me spend roughly £200 on a new aerial.
