Dogs have always been a favourite topic in the Diary, so the news
that MTV is dedicating an entire show to our canine comrades came as a
MTV’s sister digital channel, M2, has hired Dodger the cocker spaniel to
be its only presenter. DJ (that’s dog jockey) Dodger, will present an
hour-long show every month for the next six months which, we have been
told, will be audible only to dogs.
Grrrr, which an unbelievably serious MTV spokesperson told us was
compiled personally by Dodger, is made by dogs, for dogs and ’takes the
legacy of Lassie, Shep and the Littlest Hobo to the next level’.
It’s unclear whether Dodger will have celebrities on the show but it’ll
be interesting if the jungle star, Goldie, gets an invitation. Dodger
might see the name and mistakenly assume it’s his Blue Peter canine
rival who wants a chat.
