Crufts ain't seen nothing like this…It's a dog kennel that's also a mini pooch theatre, complete with stage area, glamorous red curtains, lighting and mini coat hangers 'backstage'.

The doggy dreamhouse has been created by Salford opera singer, Russell Watson, with designer Travis Alan Mills, to raise funds for pet charity Blue Cross, and says it was inspired by his showbiz life.

"I have three dogs myself who are part of the family and bring so much joy to my life, so being asked to be a part of designing a kennel to help other dogs in need seemed an exciting project" he explains "It has been fun to help shape the design inspired by my life on the stage and I can't wait to see it built and know it will hopefully be sold to help more pets in need."

Travis Alan Mills adds: "Having grown up with multiple rescue dogs, I understand the positive impact charities like the Blue Cross make to the livelihood of animals. As soon as I saw the call out to designers, I knew I had to be involved with the fantastic work the charity are doing. I was thrilled to receive a phone call saying I had been partnered with Russell. Furthermore, working closely with Chop Shop CNC in Sheffield, a high quality detailed kennel has been achieved. The collaboration has created a truly show worthy kennel!"

The kennel, one of a number created by top designers, will feature in the Spring 2018 Bow Wow Haus London exhibition, and will go on display across London, at several venues including St Pancras International. They will also be available to buy at the charity's May auction, or via online bids.

"We are delighted to have Russell support Bow Wow Haus and that his talent, creativity and passion for dogs has inspired this unique kennel design, which will make any canine the star of the stage" says Matt Cull, Deputy Director of Fundraising at Blue Cross which runs animal hospitals, clinics and re-homing services for cats, dogs, small pets and horses.

OVER £100,000 SALFORD PARENT SCHOOL FINES NOT GOING BACK INTO SCHOOLS

Star date: 15th November 2018

CASH-STRAPPED SALFORD SCHOOLS NOT BENEFITING FROM PARENTAL FINES

A Freedom of Information response from Salford City Council has revealed that during the year 2017-18, £118,920 income was received from parental fines but didn't go directly to help cash-strapped schools in the city. Instead the money went to 'support council services generally'.

"I think the money should go back into education as the lack of funding is clearly apparent" says parent Mandi Lee, who put in the FOI request.

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL TO FINALLY TIGHTEN UP ON PUPPY SELLERS

Star date: 14th November 2018

NEW REGULATIONS MEAN TIGHTER CONTROL OF ANIMAL BUSINESSES

New laws on the sales and keeping of animals mean that Salford City Council will be forced to tighten up on regulating puppy sellers and animal keepers through new national regulations.

One of the biggest changes is that a puppy at a breeder's "may only be shown to a prospective purchaser if it is together with its biological mother", and that inspections of premises are to be carried out by a qualified inspector, rather than the Council's Environment Health Team.

PEEL HOLDINGS REFUSED PERMISSION TO BUILD HOUSING ON SALFORD GREENWAY BY SECRETARY OF STATE

Star date: 12th November 2018

SECRETARY OF STATE DISMISSES PEEL HOLDINGS APPEAL TO BUILD 600 HOUSES ON WORSLEY GREENWAY

This morning, the Secretary of State at the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has dismissed Peel Holdings' appeal against Salford City Council's refusal to allow the company to build up to 600 houses in the Broad Oak area of the Worsley Greenway.

The Secretary of State agreed with the Inspector that "the proposals would impact negatively on the character and appearance of the Greenway". Noel Gaskell, from RAID, the community group that opposed the development, told the Salford Star "It shows want can be achieved when the general public put their minds to stopping developments that would cause huge problems to the residents."

SALFORD UNIVERSAL CREDIT CLAIMANT TOLD TO LIVE ON £47 A WEEK

Star date: 12th November 2018

'HOW AM I GOING TO MANAGE? I HAVEN'T GOT A CLUE...'

A Salford Universal credit claimant has been told that she must live on just £47 per week, or £190 per month, after 'migrating' from Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)... "How am I going to manage? I haven't got a clue" she tells the Salford Star.

This latest disgusting poverty setback comes on top of the shock of her father dying from a heart attack while waiting for a DWP appeal, after being told he was fit for work. His case, in retrospect, is being heard by an upper tribunal this week.
