In case you missed it..........


In the first Sunday Times of the year, I found this picture of David Beckhman and his Xmas gift from his wife.
The text underneath read:"Victoria Beckham bought her husband David a dog for Christmas, presumably on the grounds that you can't have too many of a good thing. The problem is, she bought a bulldog-poor miserable creatures which through the narcissism of generations of owners have been inter-bred to the extent that they have become parodies of the beasts they once were; sickly, deformed and with a likespan less than half of that of normal dogs. Kelly Brook also got a dog for Christmas, which she dressed up in a furry pink jacket. " The writer goes on to say that there is a marked change in the celebrity zeitgeist. Last year there was a market in little black African children!
What about the old adage: "A Dog is For Life, not Just for Christmas."?

Thanks for speaking up for us dogs who are treated as objects for human profit or pleasure. Some humans are really quite crazy.

Does it fit into her handbag?

WW, the dog probably weighs more than she does!

Hopefully it won't become a trend to get a bulldog..."weighs more than she does"..I got a giggle from that!
