A worthy heir to 'Fred the Shred' ...

I want to complain to the advertising standards watchdog!

How dare the Royal Bank of Scotland exploit a dear cute little pup in order to sell its products. And how dare they besmirch the good name of dogs in general in order to perpetrate myths that we cause problems for our humans.

As if!

Oh. Is that a chewed card you've found there Gail?

Absolutely nothing to do with me ....

PS from Gail for non-UK readers: 'Fred the Shred' is the nickname given to Fred Goodwin, former CEO of the Royal Bank of Scotland, who in 2008 presided over the biggest annual loss in British corporate history (£24 billion). 


  1. Oh Bertie I so agree with you! How dare they point fingers at us for chewing THERE things! Why it is all their fault you know. I say if they don't want it chewed then it shouldn't be on the floor!

    See you at the Pawm!

    woos, Tessa

  2. How dare they suggest such a thing? Absolutely slanderous!

    We think the card delivered to your house must have been damaged in the mail.

    Have a good weekend

  3. Disgraceful Bertie! I notice good old specsavers or some such place is also dirtying the good dog image showing a pair of glasses being chewed. I mean, I only did that the one time!

    pee ess- internet's back!

  4. Its a disgrace Bert. As if we pups should be blamed for things like this!! Unheard of really. I bet some bird probably pecked up that ol credit card. They can be tricky. Have a great weekend. No worries, and love, Stella

  5. And Fred probably got his bonus!

    Bertie, we seem to remember that there was a problem with Gail's ID card.....

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  6. I agree Bertie, if you start a public pretition I will sign it.
    I looks like Gail just put that card there to get you at it:)
    Have a good week
    See Yea George xxxx

  7. Yeah, what's up with that? And us dogs always get blamed for eating the homework too....lame, lame, lame!


  8. LOL Wyatt- my kids have been trying to persuade Alfie to eat their homework for 2 years now!

  9. Woof! Woof! Totally agree ... I don't see anything wrong. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  10. It's a set up for sure Bertie. And to mention you in the same breath as Fred... that deserves a good toe licking.

  11. Surely she is pointing the finger the wrong way.

  12. Bertie we know you were only trying out for the billboard picture

  13. Da nerve of dem.....wee would never do sometin like dat!!!


  14. Oh Bertie...we know you would never chew anything as terrible tasting as that plastic card thing! But of course, we have never chewed any thing like that :)!
    Hugs and wags, Mistaya and Maggie

  15. Bertie, you are such a perfect little lad, no damage to cards from you, right? heh, heh!


  16. And the kids at school say the dog ate their homework....

    Mai the Westie

  17. Oh Bertie, you should never chew the cards. Don't you know why? Everytimme the Mama goes to buy toys or treats or anything good, she has to show them that card. It must have the secret password written on it or something. If your Gail had no password card, how would you ge cool new stuff?!?!?

  18. Maybe the pups name is Prudence .

  19. Looks like doggie profiling to me. Shameless.


  20. We suspect Tony "I want my life back" Hayward who as CEO presided over the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico last year is giving old Fred a run for the 'biggest corporate loser' title. And BP managed to not only lose billions [with more in the offing], but to kill 11 people and God knows how much marine life - including scores of baby dophins born in the Gulf in 2010.

    On the more serious charge of doggie libel, we naturally agree with you. If the hu-apes want something 'off limits' to our natural playful impulses, it is their responsibility to put it safely away. That's like Article 1.7 of the human-canine contract.

  21. Poor Fred!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  22. PAH OF COURSE IT WAS CHEWED UP Really the mail is so terrible now a days.. Honestly how funny to think YOU YOU OF ALL PEOPLE chewed it up DID ANYONE ASK FRED??? HOW DO YOU THINK HE GOT SO MUCH MONEY We rest our case.. Love A+A
