Typo In Advert Leads To Dog Walker Offering Disgusting Service
There are many services that dog owners would find incredibly useful, but it's fair to say 'dog w***ing' is very unlikely to be one of them - and in fairness to the 19-year-old dog-walker that wasn't what she was offering.
However, a nightmare printing error led to the dog walker accidentally offering something that promised a rather more dubious happy ending.
The dog walker, from Suffolk, only started her dog walking business last September and has been horrified by the 'disgusting messages' she's received since her latest advert was published in the local parish magazine.
She obviously meant to advertise 'dog walking', alongside other services such as 'dog and visits' - as well as 'play, feeding & lots of TLC.' It's fair to say what ended up being printed certainly wasn't the TLC she had in mind.

Eye Magazine, who ran with the ad, have responded to the dog walker, with editor Chris Willoughby saying: "The printer and I have both expressed our sincere apologies," as well as promising that they 'will be instituting more rigorous procedures'.
A print worker said: "No one did it maliciously."
Really, the local community should be thankful that there's someone as caring as this dog-walker out there taking care of their dogs, for the area in Suffolk seems to be a particularly sketchy area for our canine friends.
Last December, the BBC reported that dogs found poisoned food in a field in the area. Four dogs were taken to the vets and had their stomachs pumped after eating an array of capsules and tablets wrapped in chocolate. Fortunately the animals were unharmed.
Although most of the messages that she has received have been slightly on the blue side, she has also received plenty of support - and as one writer commented 'all publicity is good publicity'.
