Tripe Dog 2015 competition moves towards its climax
The Tripe Marketing Board's annual contest to find the nation's most lovable tripe dog is hotting up, as the Quarter Finals of Tripe Dog 2015 are launched today.
Ninety-six original entries have been whittled down to 32 contenders and just eight will make it through to the semi-finals.
TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle said that the contest was always keenly fought. "We've had to stagger the entry process over a longer period following complaints that our Twitter feed was full of pictures of dogs," Sir Norman said.
"I would like to re-iterate that tripe is not just for dogs," he added.
