So we went to a philosophy thing.

@philosophyfrall @bishopsgateinst

It was about whether dogs can be human’s friends.

Why do they do surveys and seminars when they could just ask me?


What I most liked was this polish proverb someone shared…


Friends? We’re so much more.

They thought had no milk in the chess cafe (a cafe!) which was the first panic of the day.

Its ok.

#Turnsout They did.

Games are good for meeting people when u are lonely…

Next week.

Plan D: Bridge…


What goes well with chess?

Large scale holborn sorting office based installation art.

Now we like art in odd places as much as the next blogging staffy.

But this…

(like my owner)…

Was too much.


Some words… Must i…

no fanny, no boobs, popartpopartheseemstolikepopart, touristy, graffitti, phone box, david bowie, no cock.


As youll see from our social media we sashayed to Richmond.

No better place for when its sunny.

The boy wonder had to remove a dead bird from my mouth.

That was funny.

Sometimes if you’re bored or in a bad way its good to get some fresh air.

Find like minded pooches with like minded people.

Where… if a handsome 8 year old staffy with anger management issues gets grizzly with having his bits sniffed.

No-one minds.

“How would you like it?”

See Iv got a past, mate. A history if you will.

See some folks, like, not too kind to the old staffies.

Like us to fight they do.

And we love to please so we do.

Its hard not to endlessly plug meetup.com in a london ents blog but it really is a marvel. I suppose we are plugging the internet and social media in general… not as a replacement for real life interaction with friends but as a way of finding new ones, new experiences and as a way of augmenting a life where you suddenly find something missing.

I have big ambitions for this blog… Really it should be entitled…

‘Harley’s Guide to Life’ but I’m not that pompous, arrogant or self centred.

‘Harley’s Guide to London’ for now.

There are so many amazing things to do in London, especially if you are a Staffordshire Bull Terrier with a predeliction for the arts and volunteering.

There are also wonderful organisations doing wonderful things.

The Dogs Trust is a wonderful organisation. They never put a healthy dog down.

I volunteer as a dog walker at their smart West London kennels…

… …

I’m a dog…

Not sure this makes… Sense… …

In for a penny…

They have lots of Staffies and greyhounds etc needing lovely homes and I’m always amazed by the wonderful temperament of their dogs. They must do incredible work with them. Walked a wonderful cutie Rottweiler called Hudson…

We are breaking down breed misconceptions me and him…


Later this week I hope to review Aligheiro Boetti at Tate Modern.

Ooooooooo. Actually the Woman in Black is a very funny film to watch with a lot of people.

I would particularly recommend watching it in @cineworld #woodgreen.

People were calling out and talking to each other. It was quite special.

First a mans phone went off and he said “so sorry” very loud then someone called out “it’s okay” and then the man said “am I forgiven” and we all went “yes.”

It was interactive. You had to be there.

Anyway the film…

Harry potter is great at looking shit scared yet determined but the unsung heros are the supporting cast of dogs. One in a heroic lassieesque role and a couple as freaky child substitute…

Beautifully played.

It was funny again when someone called out at the end “oh… Thank god for that.”

No, it is scary, honest, Colin still hasn’t come out from behind his hands…
