CAMPAIGN DIARY: DJ Dodger the spaniel goes to show that MTV has gone to the dogs

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 welcome surprise.

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

welcome surprise.



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.
