The Dog People of Clissold Park have been growing in number since the end of the summer. Now they are all over the park, hanging around in factions. Today the weather was bad and for some reason two of the Dog People factions had decided to face off on the footpath at the north east corner of the park. There were around 30 dogs in all, covered in mud, racing around happily. But the Dog People didn't look happy. They all just stared off into the mid-distance at the other Dog People faction as if to say "they don't know ANYTHING about dogs". Now and then someone would chat, probably about dog biscuits or flea powder. Then they'd carry on staring.
These are tense days in Clissold Park.
