The ‘D’ Level (Dog Level) results came out this week. Mine came through and I woz a bit disappointed – why have they dummed up the results the year I took my exams? 21 years of making the things easier (and lying about it) and now my results were ‘grade deflated’. Needless to say I didn’t do as well as I had hoped.
I had hoped for two ‘A’s and a ‘B’ in Canine Studies, Dogology and Labradography (I woz told to concentrate on sciences) to get into Dogford the best university for dogs, but I only managed C, B, D. The course I wanted to get on woz ‘Social Media for Dogs’. Ian thought I woz making up the course, but it seems that loads of universities offer social media courses for humans and Birmingham even does a Masters in it.
Lynne suggested I go through clearing to see if there are other universities that might take me. I woz quite interested in the University of Pets (you couldn’t make this stuff up!), but I would have to go to America to study there.
So I have decided to have a gap year and lounge around on the sofa, watching daytime television and eating custard creams – at least until my apprenticeship application is considered by that nice Mr Branson as a meeter and greeter on West Coast Trains.
