Robbie Williams' dog recovering after snake bite

Tuesday, 5th July 2011

Robbie Williams' pooch may be having pet medication in order to recover from a snake bite it received last week.

The Take That star revealed on his blog that although he was given a bit of a scare, the pooch is recovering well.

He wrote: "Our Jack Russell got bit by a rattle snake last week … all good though she's fine ... tuff ting (tough thing) she is."

Williams and his wife Ayda Field have eight dogs together, which live in the couples Los Angeles home.

The Angels singer is currently on the UK leg of Take That's European tour.

Williams is known for being particularly fond of his dogs and he even used them as pretend wigs in a photoshoot by balancing different breeds on his head for his book You Know Me.

The Daily Mail quotes him as saying: "I was just trying out different colours to see what would suit me if I dyed my hair, using the dogs as colour pods."
