Someone from the BBC must have read that thread with all those whiners saying that the dog was not pulling his weight and took it off probably - damn, I am British and I like animals in general and cute dogs in particular.
Well, I did not notice and forget all about the dog when I was watching the latest series. Probably it is a good thing so there will be no distraction on the 3 blokes. Don't get me wrong, I do adore dogs...
=I'd of thought the studio jam packed with people (more so than usual), the loud music flashing lights and bangs (when richard entered) would all of been good reasons not to have top gear dog in the studio. Hopefully she'll be back next week providing important dog related car news
I noticed and I'm glad it's gone... because there was no purpose whatsoever for it being there. The first time around it was kind of cute but as time went on it started to look like a measure taken out of desperation to refresh things (which TG doesn't need to do anyhow).
In fact I didn't really like the whole revamp they did before series 8 started. They hyped it up so much and it made no difference to the overall quality of the show. I especially hate having to see the same guests on a second time... I mean it's normal for regular chat shows to have guests come on a bunch of times but it somehow doesn't work as well on TG.
