Have your say

Hi there Chipper Club fans and welcome to today’s fun-filled – and Olympic-themed – page.

The 2012 London Olympic Games finally kicks off today and it’s sure to be an exciting time for us all.

Even if you’re not a sports fan, there will be plenty to see and do.

The excitement really started to build earlier this month when the Olympic torch relay passed through our area. Thousands of you lined the streets of Fareham, Gosport, Portsmouth and Chichester to see the runners go by,.

Chipster 675 Senay Sener, from Havant, was clearly thrilled by the whole event because she used it as her inspiration for this marvellous drawing featured here today on the right.

Well done Senay, I loved your picture of your old pal Chipper holding the torch aloft with the Olympic rings in the background and thought it deserved pride of place on today’s club page.

We’ll be featuring plenty of Olympic stories in The News over the next few weeks – so let’s all get behind Team GB and give them a rousing cheer!

Of course, dogs like me don’t get to compete in the Olympics but if we did I reckon I’d get the gold medal for lazing around in the sun.

Are you excited about the Olympics? Let me know what you’re planning to watch and if you’ve got tickets to see any of the events.

That’s it for today my friends, so until next Saturday I’ll say chip chip for now!

Love Chipper X
