Man walks dog from car

A BULLMASTIFF owner has been named one of the laziest men in Britain for walking his pet dog while sitting in his car.

Kevin Pyle gets his son to drive him slowly around the block and, with his arm stretched out of the window, holds a lead attached to his bull mastiff Bruce, who walks alongside. He is happy claims to cover around four miles a week but never does any walking himself.

He said: "It sounds terrible that I take Bruce for a walk like that, but it saves me from getting wet when it's raining. He really enjoys it and it saves my legs."

Now he's won the title of being the region's Great North Bum.

Mr Pyle, of Fenham, Newcastle, was nominated for the competition by his 18-year-old son Karl.
