(Repeat of Thursday's post, which Blogger seems to have lost)
Elections to the Scottish Parliament last week resulted in a landslide victory for the Scottish Nationalist party under the supposedly charismatic leadership of one Mr Alex Salmond.
Yes I know. You won’t be interested in some smarmy politician, however successful, unless I can dig up a canine connection.
Well, neither Gail nor I could recall seeing any photos of this giant* of Scottish politics out walking a favourite pooch (although, from the look of him just now, he sure could use the exercise…)
In desperation, we reached for Google.
No sign of Wee Eck doling out ‘Best in Show’ rosettes. No cuddling fluffy puppies. Nothing.
Ah but wait!
Did you know that there is a Facebook group dedicated to the proposition that ‘Alex Salmond looks like the Churchill dog’.
[Note for non British readers – the ‘Churchill dog’ - pictured above - is well known in the UK as star of a long running series of TV adverts for a certain insurance company.]
*That’s ‘giant’ as in an ‘ever expanding girth’ sense.
