Dog Collection auctioned by Sotheby's

Not such a Shaggy Story
Hi all,
So, something that in a cynical world brings a much needed slice of hope. The above pictures of dogs are by stars ranging from Ricky Gervais to Paul McCartney. All inspired by a picture of a dog drawn on a scrap of paper by a five-year-old boy Jensen Parsons, which he named Boil(top left) for his stepfather Simon Freedman.

Now, Simon 40, an osteopath (whose patients include a clutch of A-list celebs), hung the picture on the wall of his swanky London practice and before he knew it stars aplenty were queuing up to do their own versions. Thus from such small acorns… Simon then contacted Great Ormond Street Hospital with the his grand idea which has ended with theses pictures being auctioned off at Sotheby’s to raise funds for the hospital.

As I’ve always said, you just can’t make this up. Great Stuff!
