How Adorable Is My Dog?

Finally, a definitive answer from the British public.

Anyone who follows me on Twitter knows of “the hound”, but what does the British public think of him? Does the person on the street share my fondness for this daft hyperactive spaniel?

I fired up Google Surveys and posed the crucial question:

“How adorable is this dog?”

The survey got approved and 100 demographically-varied citizens across the country gave their answers.
