hounds

Biff%20and%20me.jpgThe story of Biff and a sneak preview of Toute Allure can be found in the Daily Mail today. But oh dear, from the comments section, I seem to have drawn a lot of flack from DM readers, first of all for describing Biff as a 'mixed race' (race croisée) dog - which is what it says on his passport - rather than a 'mongrel' or a 'cross-breed.' I can't see why it matters myself - not everyone knows correct canine terminology - but voila.

Oh and just for the record, I have absolutely nothing against greyhounds. Whatsoever. On the contrary, I think they are very adorable, placid looking creatures. I love all kinds of dogs, even my brother's pit bull rescue dog Juggy - now sadly deceased - and not just cute, cuddly ones. The reason I didn't take Alan, the depressed greyhound from Battersea Dogs Home had nothing to do with his looks; I was more worried that he wouldn't fit into my flat.

Hiya Karen,
I caught your article online and it was very entertaining, not to mention fabulous press in support of our furry friends. Glad to see you too are 'stranded on Dog Island without a ferry home'. Biff looks a real character and whether he's mongrel, mutt or mixed race (though I much prefer the term 'true dog'), he's a good looking pooch. My girls Daphne and Ruby (a very undepressed greyhound with a waistline to die for) would think so too, I'm sure. Happy hiking, Paula.

Found you whilst hovering on the internet trying to find articles to read about people who start new lives somewhere else! Always dreaming of a new life in the country where i can walk my dog among uninterupted countryside instead of speeding cars and exhaust fumes...haha just read on your site you used to own a bull terrier, got one of these myself, he is my second and I wouldnt be without him!! Congrats on your new life...I look forward to the day i can raise a glass of red to mine too!
