Monday morning cheer – better than David Laws and Pingu

I hate this time of year. I do not like getting up in the dark, nor do I like it being dark before 4:30 pm. Cold weather, slippery pavements, driving rain, wind and all sorts of Winter nastiness conspire to make me want to hide away for 3 months, or run off to sunnier climes.  Maybe one of these days, I will.

To cheer you up this Monday morning, here is a picture that is guaranteed to make you smile. It’s even better than this old favourite:

David Laws and Pingu

 

Here’s Willie Rennie getting up close and personal with one of Canine Concern Scotland’s wonderful therapets. 

These therapets visit places like care homes and hospitals so that people who can’t have a pet full time can experience the companionship and comfort a dog can give.

Willie Rennie caught up with one:

It’s ripe for a caption competition. Do your best work, dear readers.

    David Laws to the pony: “I see you have a leg in each corner. I told them I wouldn’t be the last of the ‘four-cornered’ Liberals”.

    Dog to Willie Rennie: “My god, you’re a handsome brute”.

  • Willie to dog: My manifesto is bigger than your manifesto
