Apologies for absence ..... this is partly due to continuing spine/nerve problems with my neck and arm which finally drove me to obey doctor's instructions not to drive/draw or use the computer for a while.    This wasn't too difficult as we were on holiday at our home on Fuerteventura - however, I'm back home and bored.  I will be back at the drawing board on Monday as I have a couple of commission deadlines looming.

In the meantime .... all you pet loving couples out there may be interested to know about a new primetime comedy panel show which is being planned by Endemol (responsible for Big Brother amongst other programmes).  This is what they wrote to me:

Hi Sue,

We are looking for fun pet-owning couples who are very much in love, but have an ongoing tiff or dispute that they want resolved, once and for all! It doesn’t matter how small or ridiculous the issue may be – it could be an annoying habit, a strange hobby, or something silly that they just always argue about, perhaps their pets.   

Our celebrity comedy panel will watch each couple in action, listen to both sides of the story, and then ultimately decide who they think is right, and who is wrong. This is the chance to finally get your own way on an issue that’s been driving you mad!

We filmed a pilot of this show earlier in the year, and our comedians included Jack Dee, Jo Brand and Sarah Millican.

After looking at your site and looking at some of your work with pets, It would be great if you could place this information onto your website or include it in your newsletter or members’ mailing list, as this might be perfect for some of your customers. Or if you know anyone personally you could recommend that would be great as well.

Do let me know if you require any further information. I have also attached the below details as a flyer.

Best wishes,

 I couldn't find a way to upload the flyer onto my Blog so if anybody is interested in applying - or wants to nominate friends (!!)  click on the link below which will take you to the flyer (via my website) and shows contact email and telephone details.      Do let me know if you decide to go for it ....
