A bad day for Hull

Just got this email (please read previous blog for the full story):

"Thank you so much for replying. The Car dealers concerned were Barkers (Skoda), Beverley High Road, HULL, East Yorkshire. I do not know where the Head Office is (perhaps the Internet will help).
Many thanks again. Perhaps one little dog need not have died in vain.
Marilyn and Gottfried and Beinn"

I've done some digging - the dealership email is: hullsales@barkersmotorgroup.com
A Skoda press office email is jane.roxburgh@skoda.co.uk (they aren't easy to track down!)
I've also emailed Top Gear press office. If you'd like to contact them, too http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice/pressreleases/stories/2005/05_may/20/topgear.shtml

Perhaps we should have an award for people like the manager at Hull Skoda.. any ideas for the name?

I've sent a strong email to Jane Roxburgh (copy sent to you)
I might not have worded it very professionally, but I think I got the point across.

Hope Gottfried & the other people who witnessed this or tried to save the dog aren't too traumatised by this.

the one that instantly springs to mine isn't printable on a blog such as this.

I think The Rusty Nail award - as in here's hoping certain parts of his anatomy get caught on one (or more) - I think that's about the politest I can come up with.

Will be interested to hear Skoda's response!

Is that for real?
Barkersmotorgroup?

I think in that case you may get some press mileage out of this.

I near more sleep or a lot more caffeine - how did I miss that. The irony, Barkers. Anyone got any journo friends?

Beverley Cuddy said...

Obviously I need more coffee - meant 'need' not 'near'!

Beverley - what about Watchdog or The One Show? Would they be interested?

Or Look North... would they be interested?

OK - I've contacted the One Show - great ideas. Will dig out the details for Look North. Please, please can you tell other forums to look at this blog and send support. Let's get some publicity for the way lost dogs are currently treated. Imagine if this dog had been yours.
