Canine Christmas

Near to where our friends live there is an area set aside for dogs to run free, a safe place that is well fenced off and with plenty of room for even the biggest dog to go wild. Right in the centre of this large wooded area is this tree and for most of the year that is all that it is, a tree. But for a few weeks it takes on a special role, that of a doggie Christmas tree. A doggie Christmas tree, I hear you ask, yes, a place where dogs can leave notes and cards for all their dog walking friends and even in one case a bag of doggie treat for them to share. The cards read like, from jack (mad black Border collie) to all his friends. A great, if truly mad, idea.
Along the great idea route is an advert that is running here at the moment for car insurance, getting away from the normal hard sell it uses the strange idea of a meerkat complaining that people looking for the insurance site are coming to his site, compare the meerkat .com, it so off the wall its brilliant.
