Woof Woof to you all.
I have been watching the TV a lot lately. I don’t know what Mummy sees in Coronation Street or Eastenders. But some adverts are just so embarrassing to us dogs.
Take, for example, that one about the car insurance company set up by Churchill one of the Bulldog tribe. Here he is doing silly things on a TV advert. Self-respecting dog would never be seen doing that. Plus he even pretends to humans that he can only say “OH YES”.
Yet, we dogs, we know better than that.
Just listen to the different reflections in his voice. If you understand doggy language you would know that sometimes he is saying something really cheeky to the car drivers. No wonder they have to go compare when they get confused so often. But be aware I had to mention those competitors to achieve a fair balance. That way no-one can come along and say that Jack Russell Thomson said that Churchill Car Insurance is the best.
Mind you I could be bribed to say that officially! I will say who is the best. All I would ask for would be a nice piece of rib-eye steak. (Plus a baby Meerkat toy for my mummy.) Readers like you who know me will appreciate that my opinion is the only correct one. Plus I have lots of people just hanging onto my every word.
So Mr Marketer please contact me if you have a spare meerkat.
The Other Churchill
I think one of the best quotes I have heard was by his father Winston Churchill. NO! It was not an insurance quote for motor insurance it was far more interesting than that.
It was Winston who first said
“You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks.”
Isn’t that good advice?
If anyone throws a stone at me I will pick it up and throw it back at him. I love to see baddies run away frightened. I told you I trained as an undercover plainclothes cop. That gives me the right to run after him and carry out an arrest. Good job Mummy never combs my belly hair. That is where I hide my police warrant card and handcuffs.
