Biting tackles...

I DIDN’T realise the government had got dogs interested in the Big Society.

On Sunday, July 10 at Fontwell boot sale, a black-and-white dog had taken a pitch of grass, with his owner’s permission minus a lead with the Macmillan charity box.

For collections he called on the punters to kick a football and this dog would stop the ball and return it, always successfully, to the delight of people.

Surely this must be rewarded with a doggie ‘GAB’ (Good As Beckham).

What a show and the dog spent most of the morning working hard for charity. The people loved it.

Well done doggie.
