Dog fashions etc.

The New Yorker - Annals of Obsession: "Dogs Are People Too"

The dog breeding industry has a lot to answer for. Pugs and bulldogs that can hardly breathe. Chihuahuas that shiver because they're too small to stay warm. King Charles spaniels whose heads are too small for their brains. Rhodesian Ridgebacks with a skull deformity. Almost all pedigree dogs have what are, in effect, disabilities. Dachshunds and other types whose legs are too small, Yorkies whose lower jaws are too feeble to hold their teeth. The whole Crufts dog show scene is a horror show, a freak show. It needs to end.

Pressure-washing the pavements

Greenford Road
Harrow Council workers were out last night cleaning the pavements near Sudbury Hill station. This paving is relatively new, having just been redesigned and renewed over the last two years. If you want to see another couple of photos like this, see this post on Twitter.
