This week has seen the launch of the Pet Dogs Democratic Party Manifesto. It has been great fun to write and it’s always nice to see the finished product. It’s available direct from www.pddp.org.uk or through Amazon or www.alfiedog.com . What was a novel experience was taking the dog into the radio studios of Radio York for an interview. You never know in these situations how your dog is going to behave. I was nervous and there is always a risk that the dog picks up on that and then anything can happen. Thankfully, he was perfectly behaved and everyone who met him was enamoured by him. It was a fun interview and you can hear it HERE, starting 2hours 16 minutes into the show and running through a couple of songs and the news and weather. What was great was that they could see the potential and started suggesting that we really needed to be picked up by television. Now all be need to do is get a foot in the television door and Alfie and I can be nervous all over again!
Now we’re busy preparing to deliver a 2 hour workshop on short story writing at the Huddersfield Literature Festival on Saturday. This time the dog gets to stay at home!
