Ian O'Doherty: Okay, now you have no excuse
Look, I am well aware of the fact that my frankly obsessive love for dogs is a tad irritating to some people -- particularly some Muslims who were rather offended when I wrote that you cannot trust any religion which doesn't like dogs.
Having said that, I really don't care about anyone who objects to my constant mentions of Molly and Sam. After all, the nicest letter I ever received was from a woman who said that she suffers from depression.
One day she could feel that horrible dark cloud beginning to descend until she saw a picture of Molly that I ran in the column and that cheered her up and helped to lift her out of her funk.
