Blame the own­ers, , not the dogs…

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

again this week there has been a story in the news about a dog maul­ing a baby to death.

It makes me so sad to read th­ese sto­ries about th­ese in­no­cent lives which could eas­ily be saved.

But make no mis­take, the re­spon­si­bil­ity has to be with the dog owner.

If dogs are brought up prop­erly from be­ing a puppy, then I think th­ese hor­rific in­ci­dents could be avoided.

A puppy will only ever know what the owner teaches it – and if you teach it to be gen­tle, then it will be.

I have a Stafford­shire Bull Ter­rier and he wouldn’t hurt a fly. He is re­ally soft and I love him to bits.

It makes me angry when peo­ple crit­i­cise Staffies and it is al­ways the dogs that get the blame.

I love all an­i­mals, es­pe­cially dogs, and I think it’s cruel that they are slagged off for be­ing vi­cious when they have been made to be like that.

Vi­cious

X Fac­tor fans. If young fans see two man­agers be­hav­ing like that, then what kind of ex­am­ple is that set­ting to them?

Foot­ball is a mas­sive thing in young peo­ple’s lives and th­ese two men are re­spon­si­ble for those two huge clubs.

I reckon they will also lose some clout with their own play­ers – be­cause why would you lis­ten to some­one who has acted like that?

What hap­pened was not good sports­man­ship – and I think the two of them should be banned from the touch­line. OVER the past few weeks I have been so busy launch­ing my new Hard­drive cam site that I feel as though I have been ne­glect­ing my web­site a bit.

So I have de­cided to say sorry by hold­ing a prize draw on Oc­to­ber 31.

I will put the names of ev­ery­one in my mem­bers’ area into the draw and I will film my­self do­ing the live draw.

Fourth prize will be a signed pic of me, third prize will be a pair of used panties, sec­ond prize will be a 10-minute phone call and the win­ner will get a din­ner date with me!

If you want to be in with a chance, just make sure you sign up to my web­site be­fore the end of the month at www.lin­sey­dawn­m­cken­zie.co.uk

BRAVE ac­tress Lynda Belling­ham has come out and spo­ken openly about her bat­tle with ter­mi­nal can­cer.

Speak­ing out about it, know­ing she is go­ing to die, is a re­ally brave thing to do.

Her story re­ally strikes a chord with me, be­cause I went through the same thing with my mum and I know how dev­as­tated her kids must be feel­ing.

She says she wants to make sure this Christ­mas is amaz­ing be­cause she knows it will be her last.

And I think it WILL be amaz­ing. That is the same po­si­tion we were in last year with my mum and it re­ally was a fan­tas­tic Christ­mas.

It was my mum’s favourite time of year and we re­ally wanted to cre­ate spe­cial mem­o­ries. It was a tough time – sad but also nice.

This Christ­mas is go­ing to be a real strug­gle for us be­cause it will be our first Christ­mas with­out her, but I know we will get through it by re­mem­ber­ing the good times.

And Lynda and her fam­ily will get through it too in the same way. THE spat be­tween ri­val foot­ball man­agers Arsene Wenger and Jose Mour­inho on Sun­day re­ally made me cringe.

They ended up push­ing and shov­ing each other in the mid­dle of the London derby be­tween their clubs Arse­nal and Chelsea.

It was to­tally ridicu­lous – after all, they are two grown men!

I found my­self re­ally cring­ing to watch, be­cause they were go­ing off at each other and be­hav­ing like a cou­ple of kids.

At the end of the day, they should be set­ting an ex­am­ple to play­ers and
