Dog bumps other dog. News.

April 27, 2010 No Comment

The Salisbury Journal has revealed that its "dog bumps nose" story (no, I'm not making this up) has been read by 130,000 people - making it the paper's most read article ever. You'll realise how extraordinary this is when you read the story ...

Original story

Here's what it said ...

Picture 359POLICE in Ringwood are investigating the circumstances surrounding an injury to a dog’s nose.

A woman was walking her dog and puppy, when her puppy ran off.

Her dog ran after the puppy but collided with a male dog walker and his dog.

The woman's dog received an injury to his nose.

I'm not joking. That really was the original story. All of it.

Follow up story

Wait, there's more - a follow up.

MORE than 130,000 people logged on to view our top story today.

Even Mock the Week star Dara O’Briain tweeted about it.

What’s that, I hear you cry?

Was Cheryl Cole kissing David Beckham in the cathedral?


Our most viewed story ever involved a dog, with an injured nose.

At only four sentences long, it probably breaks most records for page impressions per word anywhere on the web.

So, how does it smell? One commentator asked.

The original story now has 53 comments, blaming NuLiebor and immigrants for the problem. They're joking. I think.

Hat tip to Drew Broomhall.
