And now he's bought a new dog in '11.
Bono got a new dog? I didn't know that.

Yes - last year the Hewsons obtained a black dog (forgot the breed) that they named "Jackson". Ali mentioned it in one of the interviews that she did & several pics of the dog have been seen on the internet.

She has a twitter page, but that doesn't keep her from getting here and derailing countless threads with her obscure posts.

Thanks comet for posting the second part of the interview.

Yeah when a reporter asked him what they were doing after the 360 tour, he answered that he enjoyed taking long walks with his new dog. I don't recall the breed though. It should be somehwere in this thread.

Ah well, therein lies the problem, you can only write 140 characters per tweet....

I recall that it said it was a large dog that took him for walks - but if it is the same one in Eve's tweets....dude, really? That dog is 30 pounds...maybe.

Granted, as a puppy it might be energetic and spazztastic like the owner.

^ I'm not so sure that's the dog Bono was talking about. The "new" dog looks like it's still quite young, judging from the picture Eve posted. She also said it was "her" dog. As far as I know, the family has at least two other dogs.

She has a blog. I haven't read it yet so I don't know if her "Bizarre-level" is as high there as here.

Here is my message again for all those who never read it:

Quote:
For the record I don't think he is thick at all. A few weeks ago I came across an article in which our former Prime Minister Tony Blair said that Bono could have Prime Minister himself and he said that Bono was intelligent. Love him or loathe him Blair is highly intelligent as he went to Oxford. You need 5 A*'s to get into Oxford. So if one a man who's been to one of the world's best universities says that Bono is intelligent then that's good enough for me. You don't have to have gone to university to be intelligent but I do think that a leader of any country should have at least a 2.2 undergraduate degree.

I thought he was intelligent anyway, I just think that he likes to portray himself as being a sandwich short of a full picnic, and I don't understand why he does this. Most people on here also talk about him as though he's rather dim. That's why I said what I said but I never genuinely meant it. He can come and look after my pets any day and I wouldn't have a problem at all. He's an animal lover so that just make me have even more respect for the fella. Do any of you respect him as person?
I said that Bono himself and his management tend to portray and image of being a male bimbo. I do not think, or never have thought, that he is thick in the slightest. It's you lot who make him sound a dumbass. "Oh, Ali has 5 children including Bono, and he needs her to tell him how to dress " "Oh. He never realised that waiting 9 years will exacerbate himself " and lets not forget this: "Oh, Bono believes that ampules of heavily diluted water costing £20 will bring miracles ". It's folks on here who give such a bad reputation because the man that you are talking I would have no respect for. I don't recognise him

Bono could have been prime minister, says Tony Blair
Former prime minister claims in memoir that U2 frontman could have ended up in No 10 if he hadn't chosen pop over politics

'An inspirational speaker'... Tony Blair on Bono of U2. Photograph: Getty Images
In a memoir filled with profound navel-gazing, political bombshells and a few purple-prose love scenes, Tony Blair has also found time to salute U2's activist frontman, claiming he "could be ... prime minister".

Blair's new book, A Journey, is the hottest thing in bookshops this week. It captures the government equivalent of band in-fighting – Brown and Blair like the Gallagher brothers – and even Blair's struggle with alcohol. But it's also got a tiny bit of real rock stardom, particularly in a passage on Bono.

On page 555 (via Spinner), Blair praises Bono as pop's answer to Barack Obama – someone who could cross party lines and get things done. "I knew he would work with George [W Bush] well, and with none of the prissy disdain of most of his ilk," Blair writes. "[Bono] could have been a president or prime minister standing on his head. He had an absolutely natural gift for politicking, was great with people, very smart and an inspirational speaker ... [He was] motivated by an abundant desire to keep on improving, never really content or relaxed.

Although he doesn't name his favourite U2 album, Blair does recall anti-Thatcher concerts by Red Wedge in the late 80s. "There was a group of musicians ... fronted by people like Paul Weller and Billy Bragg, who came out and campaigned for us," he writes. "It was great. But I remember saying after one of their gigs ... 'We need to reach the people listening to Duran Duran and Madonna.' ... [The idea] went down like a cup of sick."

Celebrities, Blair explains, "can reinforce, even boost [a political] message ... What they can't do, of course, is substitute for the politics ... but properly used, they help. And frankly, given the difficulty in rousing the damn thing, [Labour] needed the help." Perhaps U2 could write a new soundtrack for Blair's audiobook.
