...and to wind up this particular little series of one-liners let me bark out that they have come to you from Mark Haggan. A British businessman and entrepreneur who likes to spread the smiles. I just couldn't resist passing them on.

I saw a sign on shop door that said ‘Guide Dogs Welcome’. I walked in and was greeted by a Labrador who thanked me for shopping and took my coat. 
I know someone who has a dog that keeps eating garlic. His bark is worse than his bite. 
A friend wanted to start collecting dogs. I gave him a couple of pointers. 
A local dog gave birth at the side of the road. She got fined for littering. 
Threw a ball for my dog last night. It’s a bit extravagant I know but it was his birthday and he looks great in a dinner suit. 
I used to have a dog who liked red wine. He was a Bordeaux collie. 
I know another dog who goes and sits in the corner every time the doorbell rings. He’s a boxer. 
Local dog barks at everyone. He’s a cross breed. 
Got myself a robot puppy. Dogmatic. 
I called my dog Blacksmith. Every time I opened the door, he made a bolt for it.

  3. Now that kind of ball sounds much more fun than pointlessly chasing a sphere around the garden...

  10. brahahaha cross breed, that is me and hubby, and I love all of these and I want the name of the shop with a lab welcome... love these Yam

  11. Too funny! Thought of you yesterday while on my morning walk. The is a yellow lab that walks its human around here. The lab saw me and laid down. In chatting with her human he noted she was in training to be a service dog. And that is when I thought of you and your sponsorship of service dogs. Well, this traitorous nation is celebrating rebellion day, or Independence Day as we call it. Take care n will visit after stuffing with hamburgers and hot dogs. Well, not real dogs. namaste, janice xx
