Marley stays cool in the shades

Brown dog wearing white sunglasses sticks nose in shiny bowl of waterMarley’s the name and cool is the game. That’s Marley as in Bob, the music legend. Waggae music, I think they called it. I’m working on the dreadlocks: just gimme time.

Now it’s all very well these Saints wearing their underwear on the outside and running around with their feet strapped to planks of wood, but I’m here to tell you St Helena Day ain’t the big day of the year as far as us dogs is concerned.

Not compared with the Doggy Day Out, which must be twice as important as St Helena Day, because it happens twice as often. We jus’ had another one a couple of months back.

We have our silly sports too, but we run around strapped to something far sillier than a plank of wood:

Dog wearing sunglasses, tongue hanging out after drinking, slobberingWe’re strapped to people instead, on leads. And most of them are as daft as two planks of wood. Sometimes they let go, and then we just hang loose.

Doggy Days Out are not cool. They’re run by the St Helena SPCA, and they’re hot. But a dog’s gotta chill, and a shiny bowl of water only goes so far. Hence the shades. And the slobber.

Okay, maybe not the slobber.
