Ashley and Pudsey - Britain has got talent!

Congrats to them in spades. Winnning Britain's Got Talent was a real joy not just for me but millions of dog owners. Call me an old softie - and it helps that Pudsey looks a bit like my dear bearded collie, now sadly gone - all I can say is they are ambassadors for dog ownership in a time when so many are neglected. Go Ashley! Go Pudsey!
