TLVD again a winner

I have just been informed and am very thrilled to again receive the prestigious annual Laughing Horse award at a recent private ceremony at Pudding Towers, Sheffield.  
The Last Visible Dog blog was awarded the .. er, award for:

"The Advancement of Art Through Blogging."

Unfortunately I was unable to attend due to inclement weather interrupting flight plans, and so missed out on a good bash.  But I supplied a full-size cardboard replica of myself, and also one of my giant godwit escort.  

Many thanks to Lord and Lady Pudding and all the Pudettes at Yorkshire Pudding manor.


  1. Well done and well deserved.

    I like the New Look by the way.

  2. Dear Madam, So sorry you couldn't be physically present at our awards ceremony this year. You were very close when you light-heartedly suggested that we probably had a cardboard cut-out of you on the stage. In fact, it was a lifesize wax replica made by technicians from Madame Tussauds. Congratulations and very best wishes, Sir Winston "Yorkshire" Pudding

  3. Thanks Geeb. The makeover was purely in the interests of greater ease of reading. For me, if not for others!

    YP. I too, was gutted not to be there. The high jinks of last year's bash are etched in my memory, and I still have the scars from the fake-grass-burn I got from the pool table.
