Shoegaze Dog is back!

Apologies to dedicated followers of Shoegaze Dog, but due to some unforseen server issues, we were forced offline for a while. Rest assured that you can't keep a good dog down, and Shoegaze Dog is back and better than ever!

We'll be getting more dogs on the blog asap, so please bear with us as we've obviously got a considerable backdog to get through.

Shoegazer Russell looks like his dog!

They say dogs look like their owners, well here's conclusive proof that shoegaze dogs are no different! Russell from Bridlington in Yorkshire has sent us this fantastic picture of him and his dog Mark. Russell is a budding guitarist himself, and apparently Mark is prone to "howl like a wolf" at the sound of Russell's Fender Jaguar feeding back through a cranked up Marshall JCM800 stack.

So, the question here is surely: could this be the first shoegaze band to actually feature a dog? We'll be watching with interest here at Shoegaze Dog.

Thanks to Russell for getting in touch. If you've got a shoegaze loving canine at home, send your pics and info to us at
