You can't say you get nothing for free in this world

You can't say you get nothing for free in this world

If you could just picture this scene inside my head for a moment – a couple are driving around Brighton with their dog Bruno. They are trying to choose a place to wash their car when they suddenly see the deal clincher.They spot the dog bowl in the picture above, ‘a complimentary dog bowl my dear! this is a deal we can’t turn down!’

No I can’t see this happening either, no matter how good the dog bowl is. In this case the dog bowl is a small rubbish bit of plastic, the water is warm from being in the sun and there is a fly in there. In fact the state of this dog bowl would make me want to choose somewhere else instead.

This photo was taken outside a car wash near the harbour in Brighton last summer.

Poo On A Wall

Poo On A Wall

Pretty simple point to this post. This was taken outside by work’s office just before Christmas. Is it human or animal poo? We are going for a crack user. Either way it’s utterly disgusting. Also the next day, one of my colleagues spotted a dog eating some of the poo.

This is my final Christmas related post for now. I was outside Brixton tube one night just before Christmas when I passed by this busker. His Christmas hat was a nice touch, but the Christmas top and hat for the dog really made it for me. The dog was very well trained because he didn’t move, but unfortunately not much music was coming from him.

Still this dog has a long way to go to match Bella – Will’s/Office dog at Acknowledgement. My fellow employees keep buying outfits for Will’s dog and then claim they were bought by the fictional dog Stella (apparently Bella’s best mate).

While I mention Bella, I should also point out how much she loves to sun bathe and the photo below proves it…

Finally I shall just point out this piece of artwork I saw in a gallery in Mayfair a few months back. It was a stuffed dog eating a rodent which I thought was frighteningly similar to Bella.

This is such a great story i only heard from my mate Charles last week, i had to publish it online before all the other material i’ve been waiting to tell all these months.

So this is it. Charles friend was asked to look after their friend’s pet dalmation dog for 2 weeks while he/she was on holiday. Unfortunately the dog died the day after they went on holiday and the friend didn’t know what to do (I thought that was unlucky and bad enough). So the friend rang up a vet and they said the dog couldn’t be left in the house until the owner came back 2 weeks later, the friend would have to bring the dog to the vet.

Now this is where it gets more remarkable, the friend had no car and no way of transporting this big dog. So the best solution was to put the dog in a suitcase and travel on the tube. That’s right a dead dog in a suitcase on the tube, now it’s getting silly.

So as the friend approaches the stairs to leave Kings Cross station a stranger comes over and asks if the friend needs a hand with the suitcase. The friend reluctantly but under such strain from the suitcase accepts. The stranger asks ‘how come this is so heavy? what’s in it?’ to which the friend has to think of something of the top of his/her head and replies ‘oh just some laptops…’ and at this point the stranger decides to leg it with what he thinks is some laptops but in actual fact is a dead dog!

I would love to seen his reaction when he got home and opened the suitcase. Remarkably and somehow according to Charles the dog’s owner somehow managed to see the funny side of this when he/she got back!
