If this were a job I’d have been fired by now

Just as well it’s not then. The feeble excuse is that a lot’s been happening, concentrating on anything is difficult but I’m in dire need of a break so here goes, a trolley load of links to celebrate the fact that it’s almost the weekend. Let’s start with the animal related ones.

First up is an article from the BBC:

Duo the dog

Unique-looking dog seeks new home

Forget the old joke which starts ‘my dog has got no nose…’ – Duo the Staffordshire bull terrier has two.

Staff at Newcastle Dog and Cat Shelter are having problems finding a home for the three-year-old because of his unique appearance caused by a harelip.

If you’re looking to adopt this gorgeous chap and lucky enough to live in the Newcastle area, the Newcastle Dog and Cat Shelter phone number is here at the Dogs Trust website.


Guaranteed to get the most hard hearted of you sobbing into your teacup, 50 animals in casts.

Small dog looking very sorry for itself, both legs in pink plaster of paris.

And then chortling at 50 animals driving.

Dog with comical expression sat at steering wheel

Oh and how about this mini clip, Big Dog, Little Dog?


How about a good news story? A charity shop in Morriston, Swansea were surprised when a customer returned two china figurines she’d bought earlier. Why? Because they’re worth at least 10 times the £2.50 she paid for them.


And finally…

Long Awkward Poses is subtitled capturing magic moments. Hmm.

It’s simple, really. People look foolish when posing for a picture. So tell your loved ones you would like to take their photo… then secretly videotape them the whole time.

(Note: swearing in all clips. I think I would be too.)

    Double dog nose – ahhh, he looks like he’d be double dog loyal. Pets in casts – sob! As for the rest – haaaaaa! Thanks for the links dear lady.

    I think Duo and all the little misfit doggies need all the publicity they can get to convince people that they have a lot of love to give in spite of their physical appearance.

    I’m going to do a post on Sadie, the Brit bomb sniffing dog. You may have written about her already, but we probably shouldn’t, as you say, wear the same dress to a party.:>)

    Funny you should say that. A friend and I wore the same outfit from the Gap to a recent party. We were horrified at first but neither of us ever got so much attention. Everyone thought we were so cute and that we had planned it. Go figure.
