Event Description

Love dogs or hate them, Andy Smith respectfully and poetically suggests that the human race has a lot to learn from its canine companions. The average British pooch enjoys a life of unparalleled ease and luxury ... despite being somewhat smelly, noisy and expensive to run.

And if you’re still having to live a ‘dog’s life’ in a ‘dog eat dog’ world, then what you probably need is a thumping good holiday ... with, or without, Fido, Rover or Tiddles at your side!

  • Duration: 45 mins
  • Online Zoom event: Join from your computer, phone or tablet (no replay available)
  • Join as an individual or book for private groups up to 300

Meet the Host, Andy

Andy Smith is a performance poet, author and former business communicator who has two artificial limbs, three fine children, a whippet called Tamba and a tabby called Toby. (He also had two feisty chickens until ‘Basil Brush’ made their acquaintance). Andy engages live and digital audiences with his poetry, humour and a smattering of history ... and once a year, the bionic bard and his long-suffering wife make a trip to West Africa to support and encourage victims of trauma.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
