    Default Prefer my Poodle to

    ... my girlfriend.

    It's an admission that would see many of us end up in the dog house.

    Chris Packham has confessed that his pet pooch means more to him than his other half.

    The Springwatch presenter, who has been in a relationship with zoo owner Charlotte Corney for 10 years, said 14-year-old poodle Scratchy was the 'most important creature' in his life.

    The 56-year-old, who was diagnosed with Asperger's in 2005, said that the condition meant his love for pets 'knows no bounds'.

    The naturalist told Radio Times: 'Scratchy is the most important creature in my life. He's dependent on me; Charlotte isn't.
    OK this is freaky:
    Scratchy's twin, called Itchy, died last year and Packham has had the poodle's body kept in cold storage in a barn beside his cottage.
    As he's got Aspergers it appears he doesn't understand the dog will die in the next 5 years but he could easily live another 40 years.

    His girlfriend could die in the next 5 years. Easier to get a new dog though.

    This is from the same newspaper that loves to run stories about him because he is anti-fox hunting, therefore evil, doesn’t hold back on his opinions about the importance of nature, therefore evil, and works for the BBC, therefore evil.

    It’s not surprising that they selectively quote an article to ridicule him.

    True. Though she is more likely to dump him.

    Just as an aside - should someone who does not recognise the fact has dog could die in 5 years but he could live to be 40 be allowed to drive?

    What's that got to do with the price of fish?

    I think what he’s trying to say is if something is dependent on you it should be ignored, only things that aren’t dependent on you should be valued.

    My wives always die within 5 years of marriage. They can't stand it any longer.

    If I’d married a cyclist, so might mine.
