Great advert for Cornish Tourism!

Sorry just had to comment on the outrageous behaviour of a Cornish bed and breakfast. They have been fined for refusing a married gay couple to stay in a double room and share a bed. Quite right!  What era do they think they are living in? I know Cornwall has some old world charm but they have served up Old World without the charm! To add insult to injury the Church are going to pay the fine for...

Beware 4 legged larger louts!

Brewers in Holland have launched a Dog Beer. It is alcohol free and made from a special blend of beef extracts and malt, to keep a beer taste and add meaty goodness.  The makers market it as ‘a beer for your best friend’.  A spokesman said “for large dogs we recommend one bottle a day smaller dogs like chihuahuas, well they prefer shorts’. It is being trialed in the Derby...

Fears over Poodle Cross Breeding

Poodles are well known for their intelligence, good nature and most recently for their hair retention which has made them a popular choice for cross breeding.  You can get anything from a cockerpoo to a labradoodle with people experimenting with all types and breeds of dogs.

A New Years Resolution for you to consider…

So here we are at the beginning of another year and I’ve got a proposition for all you dog owners out there… You see your loyal and trustee companion’s (for the most part) can’t type and haven’t yet learnt to master the art form of blogging as I have (but give them time…) and so I feel it is my duty as their official spokesperson to ask you to please include...

Festive Frolics…

Ah… Christmas… isn’t it a wonderful time of year? Personally I’m a little concerned about my humans who seem to have over indulged in a few too many mince pies and Christmas pudding helpings which is evidenced by the fact that they are all walking around with the top button on their trousers undone and a rather bloated appearance in general… I’ve been trying to...

Dogs that look like their owners a LOT!

Now it’s a well known fact that dogs tend to look like their owners… or the other way around – but when I came across this video I just couldn’t believe my eyes! It got me thinking – is the saying “opposites attract” even remotely true?  If dogs choose people that look so obviously just like them surely this age old saying needs re-writing? It also made...

Merry Christmas Mr President!

I was absolutely gob smacked today when I read about the incredible creativity of the White House florist, Laura Dowling who fashioned an amazing likeness of my dear friend Bo Obama out of… wait for it… PIPE CLEANERS!  40,000 pipe cleaners in fact… which took 500 hours of constant twisting to produce a “faux Bo” worthy of greeting the first families guests for the festive...
