    Thanks, First Dog. You will be missed.

    Thanks, Dawg. Its been real. I do hope Brenda finds her way into your work at the Guardian. She is special and I do like a lot of gratuitous cussing. Jasper, too, and Mrs Slocombe. You can retire Bucket Head – he actually now has his head up some fundament, in fact many fundaments, just one at a time. He thinks he’s a winner, we know different.

    Enjoy your new north facing kennel. Keep up the good fight.

    Thanks, Crikey, for giving this dog a home and bringing his marvelous musings to a grateful subscriber.

    Thanks, Doganauts, one and all, for the many sniggers, chortles and guffaws you elicited from me. See you at the Guardian.

    ‘Onya, Firsty, it’s been a great ride. Time for a finale singalong, Dogonauts….

    The way you swear the cat
    The way you draw Tony
    The memory of all that –
    No, no – they can’t take that away from me.

    The way your ‘toon just beams
    The way you sketch off-key
    The way you shaft regimes
    No, no- they can’t take that away from me.

    No, they can’t take that away from me.

    We did but see him passing by….
    Onya doggie. It’s been a spectacular ride and this cosy little space in the dogonaught lounge has been a truly lovely sanctuary on the Intertubes.

    Meanwhile, the world beyond the paywall is about to get a wonderful surprise.
    Happy cycling.

    PS you missed the poodle in fishnets..
