CANTON-Local ‘Mr Dog’ joins Twitter

Ever walked along the streets of Canton just before the old St David’s Hospital? Well recently you may have noticed a random tennis ball lying all alone in the road or lingering on the pavement!? Well it (lovingly) belongs to a guard dog from M & R Decorating Supplies based on Cowbridge Road West next to Castle Bingo.

When the builders yard is shut up for the night the World’s most nicest guard dog intentionally rolls the ball onto the pavement to tempt passing pedestrians to throw the ball back in for him to catch. The efforts of the public have been captured on video.

This guard dog has become quite famous locally and as such has now joined the social website Twitter under the name of Mr Dog (of Canton)

Here are some tweets from Mr Dog since he joined up!

So next time you’re walking down this area – don’t be scared – it’s the worst guard dog in the world…ever! but more importantly remember to throw the ball back to him…..and again and again!
PS there is a second guard dog in the vacinity which does seem to be a lot more scary!
