CAMPAIGN DIARY: A bit of a dog perhaps but Myrtle has pride of place at Marcus’s pad

Regular readers will remember a spate of dog stories a couple of months ago and, in particular, the tale of Myrtle from OgilvyOne.

Regular readers will remember a spate of dog stories a couple of

months ago and, in particular, the tale of Myrtle from OgilvyOne.



It seems Myrtle’s owner, Marcus Fernandez, is now looking to widen his

own appeal - although, as before, it’s a case of ’love me, love my

Myrtle’.



Fernandez is featured in the November issue of Marie Claire, in a story

called, ’Can you judge a man by his home?’



Sharing the spotlight with him are a media planner, a photographer and a

tour guide.



The magazine sent four single girls to judge the four men’s flats and

give their verdict on whether they were nice, caring New Men or

lager-drinking lads (although, to be honest, it seemed more like a giant

ad for girlfriends to us).



So what did the investigators find at Marcus’s flat? Well, plenty of

evidence of Myrtle’s existence, of course. As Marcus says in the

article: ’Myrtle is my true companion and long-term partner.’



Myrtle’s doggy snacks were found lurking in the bedroom drawers and

photographs with a canine theme could be seen on all the walls. Oh yes,

eagle-eyed readers will also spot a doggy doorstep in one room. Oh, the

chicness of it!



Imagining a perfect evening - and morning - with Marcus, one of the

intrepid girls says: ’Breakfast would be at Primrose Hill and then a

brisk walk with his prize pooch.’ Has Marcus found his dream girl at

last? And a human one at that?



Anyway, Diary checked out all the bachelor pads in the article and

decided 32-year-old Marcus sounds a better bet than the rest of the

bunch - even though he is seemingly blessed with the middle name of

Codrington.
