I'm late! I'm late! For a very important date.

No time to say 'hello', 'goodbye', I'm late! I'm late! I'm late!

Without further ado, the (late) December winner.

I asked all you smart pups if you could travel to any moment in history, what moment would it be and why?

As per usual, we had some fantastic answers and choosing a winner was nearly impossible. Eventually I managed to whittle it down and chose:

File 12597File 12427If I could visit any one moment in all of history, there is no way that I could choose just one. There are so many places and moments in history that picking just one would be like dipping your toe into the ocean then walking away. If I could trave through time, I would go to Elizabethan London and watch one of William Shakespeare's plays at the Globe Theatre. I would march alongside Joan of Arc. I would have tea with Tutankhamun. I would watch the first ever film. I would witness the signing of the Armstice, and join in the celebrations that peace has finally returned. I would have a banquet in a royal castle. I would watch the moonlanding, as humans first set foot in outerspace. I would ride the first seam-engine. I would watch a sunset in an Australia which had not yet been destroyed. History is so full of wonders and horrors and firsts and lasts that if you gave me a time-machine I could never give it back. I would want to visit all of these moments and so many more.

Congratulations! My human minions will be in touch.

That's an amazing answer :O I personally would have liked to be around for the Russian Revolution and the Cold War.... maybe the French Revolution, given I'd come out alive... because I'm a crazy loony like that :P
