I thought the silly season started in the summer, but this bizarre "exclusive" in today's Mirror proves that it starts today. According to the article, dogs bark with the regional accents of their owners. Oh yes, it's true. And as the Mirrror have chosen to pad out this exclusive with a picture of dogs wearing stereotypically regional clobber, I have to reproduce it here for your viewing (and, ahem, linguistic) pleasure. That is Robbie Fowler on the far right, isn't it?
