2016 a dog's eye view #21
2016, for some, was quite the dog's bollocks. 1. Take Westie Devon, who took home top prize at England's top show or 2. QE2 who snuck Corgis into 2 out of 8 of her 90th portraits and swindled a Vanity Fair cover to boot. 3. King Leo did his pup proud and at long last took home an Oscar. 4. In Rio Bono the Surf Dog stole the show at the Summer Olympics while Jimmy the Bull and his dad's illustrated images stole our hearts.
2016 was also a treat for art and design hounds. 8. Dominic Wilcox staged an art show solely for mutts at which a simulated car window wafted fave doggy scents and puppers could frolic in a giant bowl of biscuits.
For others 2016 was a Bitch of a year. Take Johnny Depp for example. 12. Despite saving his Yorkie's from the clutches of Oz Immigration and its "War on Terrier", saving his marriage was far less successful.
In a similar fashion Brangelina went Splitsville. Poor Brad lost Ange and a gaggle of kids. Chin up Brad we'd take the mutt over that human menagerie.
2016 took too many top dogs. R.I.P 16. David Bowie 17. George Michael 18. Prince 19. Sonia Rykiel 20. Muhammad Ali 21. Carrie Fisher 22. Debbie Reynolds 23. Zsa Zsa Gabor.
May the dog days be over in 2017.
