Stop knit picking, she can come and do my hair or fit me for a corset or even measure me for a dress anytime she wants to.

To answer Mikes question, she works for a lot of tv studios and makes the costumes for them, and works in conjunction with hair stylists
and make-up etc.

A blind pedigree dog has had an 'extreme' facelift which means she is able to see for the first time since being born a year ago. Molly, a Shar Pei, had a condition called entropion where folds of skin rubbed against the eyes.

The painful disease left the puppy unable to see - but she has now had her sight restored after two operations last week.

Vet Richard Marks removed the offending skin and stitched it to the back of her head.

He said the dog was suffering from the worst case of entropion he had ever seen, adding the dog's disability was caused by severe inbreeding.

Her owner Louise Walsh, from Romford in Essex, reportedly bought Molly for £500 in September, but has already paid £720 in vet bills.

The Kennel Club announced new regulations to prevent close family mating last year.



A pox on these so called breeders
