Post your pooch-pics here!
If you’re a local dog owner then send your snaps to email@example.com (or post them on Twitter – @shoutstreatham). We’ll post the cutest, cuddliest and daftest here. Possibly a prize at year-end. Sausages, most likely.
Sometimes, an advert is just so good you have to paste it onto your blog …
“SCRUFFS” – THE FRIENDS OF STREATHAM COMMON FUN DOG SHOW!
An absolute humdinger of a day out, and a huge thank you to John Rhodes and the Friends of Streatham Common team. We did our damnedest to capture every winner – but dogs do have a tendency to wander off, chase things, or just go and find something interesting to chew … apologies to anyone we missed, send photos/corrections to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll fix things as soon as we can!
And they’re off – John Rhodes opens the show with Mayor of Lambeth Mark Bennett
Best Rescue Dog – get your hankies out, this was a real weepie …
Seven-legged Race – we suspect performance-enhancing liver snacks …
Best Veteran Dog (another weepie, sniff)
PAT Dogs Parade
Best Fancy Dress
Didn’t win a prize? Doesn’t matter. Everyone’s a winner as far as we’re concerned. Pick out your pooch in our rogues’ gallery!
So – salon dog Jasper is all dressed up for Gay Pride …
But even an activist needs a snooze …
Down to the Common for Kite Day, and to meet Friends of Streatham Common Dog Show organiser John Rhodes. The world and his dog really did seem to be out this morning … another fabulous #Streatham day …
NEWS FLASH! So – new stylist Simon arrived, and he brought with him – Jasper, the Staffie-Jack Russell cross. Just moved into the area with a new 10-month-old puppy and nobody to dog-sit him – well, what were we to do? Turn him out into the cold? Nah. We brought in a blanket and give Jasper the run of the Rombouts biscuit tin, of course.
So it’s official – we have our very own salon dog. A dog all of our very own … sniff … stand by for the salon dog blog …
POLL – Dog-parking? What do you think?
They do it in Herne Hill, apparently – secure hooks so shoppers can leave pets while they pop-in (more here). Are you in favour? Would you like to see some in Streatham?
Let us know what you think. If there’s enough interest @allabouthairUK have told us they’ll test one outside their premises …
STOP PRESS – if you’re out walkies anywhere in south London and need to know where the dog-friendly pubs and cafes are – @TotallyClapham have listed them all, here
