Then another logo appears and so on. The fun part comes from trawling through the extensive list of brands to find out which words other people have used to describe them.

Mans Best friend

Its with a sad heart that I have to announce that my dog of seven years old had to be rather unexpectedly put to sleep this week and this in turn has caused a lot of family upset as 24hrs earlier the dog was fine as I walked her on her evening walk.

Unfortunately for the last 3 years she has been having the odd epileptic seizure and this was controlled by medication from the vet but this week she had a massive seizure and it just wouldn't stop no matter what the vets did and so she had to be put to sleep.

This has caused quite a lot of upset and meant a little time away from work

See here for more pics of her in the studio with me on the air
