It's been a big week in the Dogs Today office!
My longest serving employee (Jen) had her last day yesterday - she'll be working from home - the latest in a long line of our employees that have left the 'real' office to inhabit a 'virtual' one. My second longest serving employee (Julia) has been off all week and can't stop being sick - poor thing. So we're really rattling about here at the moment!
I've just looked at Julia's work in progress and have found that only two people this month have successfully negotiated our postal service to write in and tell us about their lovely golden oldies. As the oldest dog featured each month wins a smashing doggie cake, I immediately sensed the blog may help fill that hole!
Please do email me and tell me about your beloved oldies - we need to know how old they are, which breed or type and ideally their weight. We use all these things to apply a formula that calculates their human equivalent age and it includes a formula that even's out the pedigree/crossbreed different life expectancies.
Any dogs calculated to be 100 in human years or over get a special telegram from the Queen's corgis!
If possible please email a photo, too and any anecdotes that you can give us.
Send direct to me firstname.lastname@example.org and mark golden oldies in the subject please so I'll spot it.
Another thing we're short of - doggie events for our free listing service - if you have anything that needs a plug, do drop us an email ASAP!
Caption judging was an intimate affair with only three of us short-listing and Karen, assistant ed in Norfolk having the casting vote for the ultimate winner.
Two came from the blog this time:
A: "No, stop telling me Porkies! from Lorraine Gibbons, Slough
B: "There's Snout as queer as folk" from Dawn Key, Luton
Please vote for who gets the Wubba between these two. Some cracking one's in this time, really tough to judge!
