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: firstname.lastname@example.org
A Skoda press office email is email@example.com (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?
