Safe sex campaign

I know I often use the pages of this blog to criticise my arch nemesis The Bulldog, so in the interest of balance I have to give credit where it is due.

Kensington Safe Sex Day appears to have slipped past me, but not passed the Bulldog, who decided to make a real effort for the day by wearing a giant condom!

Politicians always take themselves far too seriously, so there is no harm in the occasional stunt that shows they have a sense of humour.

It proves that Bulldog is a sport really, and all credit to her for highlighting this important issue.

My friend Zac

Finally got round to putting paws to paper to write to my pen friend Zac, who lodges at the Dogs Trust centre in Huyton.

Zac send me a nice postcard over the summer telling me he has moved into a new kennel, which he is sharing with a cross breed called Lilly. They appear to be getting on VERY well and they regularly snuggle up together on the armchair. How romantic!

I know that Zac reckons he's a real charmer with the lady dogs, but I bet he wouldn't give up his last doggie-choc for this Lilly.

Anyway, I finally got around to updating him on all my exciting news from recent months. From the thrill of the election campaign tail to my unexpected fame as a celebrity dog blogger!

Zac does have his own fan page on the Internet, where he gets lots of messages from is supporters. Unfortunately he hasn't taken up blogging yet, although I have offered to help him get started.

Zac really needs to get himself on e-mail so we can chat more often, I feel guilty that I hadn't written to him since February. At least I am in the luck position of being able to help a dog less fortunate than myself.

Now for a completely shameless plug. If you can afford it, please sponsor Zac or one of his housemates by visiting http://www.dogstrust.org.uk/sponsor_a_dog/whysponsoradog/ They never put a healthy dog to sleep, and your donation will make sure that more of my doggie friends get the life they deserve.

Lots of doggie love,

Did you miss me?

Hi there to all my loyal fans.

I took a break over the summer, and never really intended to return to blogging. However, I have been inundated by complaints from my human supporters, and have finally agreed to return paws to keyboard.

I shall return to reporting my news, gossip and musings on these pages. What started off as a bit of election fun is now looking more like a job for life. Oh well!

So what have I been doing over the summer, I hear you ask?

Well I have been catching up on sleep a lot of the time, and read a few improving books, such as Mark Steel's excellent book What's Going On which is a hilarious critique of Middle Age, New Labour, and the failures of the far left.

I also spent some time trotting around the country, including another memorable trip to York. I will spare you the details as my arch nemesis The Bulldog has threatened me with legal action and open warfare if I post details of any more of my trips to visit friends in Yorkshire! Fortunately I don't think she knows where I live yet, so free speech is preserved, albeit from an underground position.

This is how things are under New Labour, you are virtually banned from having similar holidays as new Labour politicians. No doubt this is so that they don't have to mix with ordinary people (or dogs) and discover how hated they are.

Everywhere I stayed someone managed to work into the conversation a derogatory comment about Gordon Bean... sorry Brown! I have never known anything like it.

Just had the final call for my evening walk, so I will catch you next time.

Lots of doggie love,
