"If dogs were humans, Onion would be Scarlett Johansson"
And while we were away, the Independent on Sunday of 22nd April included a piece by Luiza Sauma which described Lewisham Pet-Tastic in glowing terms: "a Staffordshire Bull Terrier dressed as a pink bunny is canoodling with a tiny white West Highland Terrier who's come as Princess Leia (with side buns and all)...Children are busy decorating dog biscuits and masks, having their faces painted (as dogs, of course)...and another Westie, dressed as some sort of musketeer, helps himself to some treats...The next one is on 23 June, in Peckham. So what are you waiting for? Borrow a dog, come along, and be part of a communal work of art.'
And, of course, Onion earned a mention:
"At the centre of it all sits Onion, Lewisham Pet-tastic's miniature bull terrier mascot, resplendent in space-age silver, in homage to Laika, the original astro-dog. If dogs were humans, Onion would be Scarlett Johansson. After all, she's a beautiful, glamorous, young actress."
We are, as you might imagine, inordinately proud!
And, for the record, three Bullies In Need bullies came too. Two were superheroes, dressed as Batman and Superman, and all three were much loved by children, dog owners, passers-by... They were a huge and lovable credit to bullies in general and rescue bullies in particular and it was a delight to meet them!
