I'm interrupting this dormant dog-blog to write about my entry into the world of children's literature - there will still be the occasional mention of my erstwhile doggie companion who is still a pup in spirit, if not in size.

Is this the future?

Went walking on the beach the other day, when a HUGE dog that bared a very scary resemblance to Pip came barrelling up.  
Pip after one too many pizzas?

Tom’s owner said she couldn’t remember the last time he’d moved so quickly. And from the size of him I believed her...

She didn’t know what breed Tom was because he was a pound dog. In fact, this woman was a saint – she’d picked up Tom and another dog as a foster parent. I was only vaguely aware that you could foster dogs! Anyway, nobody wanted Tom and his cell mate so she ended up keeping them.
The funny thing about Tom is his diet. When I marvelled at his size and I’m not kidding this dog was technically obese; his owner only a little sheepishly confided that it was because he liked pizza too much.
She said Tom was now on a strict weight management plan which meant a special diet (no pizza) and regular exercise.
So we'll never feed Pip pizza - hmm, unless he asks very nicely...
