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.

AS BRIDGE ROW RUMBLES ON, IRLAM RESIDENTS OPEN CONTROVERSIAL BRIDGE THEMSELVES

Local councillors in Irlam and Cadishead have told Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, not to give in to Peel Holdings 'ransom' in the legal row over the opening of the Barton Lifting Bridge. The Salford Star understands that the company has not yet even responded to Salford Council's letter setting out why the bridge is Peel's responsibility.

Meanwhile, fed up of waiting for Peel Holdings and Salford City Council to resolve their legal differences, yesterday campaigners took matters into their own hands and gave the bridge a champagne opening.
