Heavy-Metal Icon Ozzy Osbourne to Open Not-So-Hardcore Doggie Daycare
For fans of the former reality television show, The Osbournes, you’ll recall that Black Sabbath frontman, Ozzy Osbourne was a softie when it came to stray dogs. In fact at one point he and his partner, daytime television show host Sharon Osbourne, housed 18 of the little critters (literally little, most were Pomeranian crosses) and complained famously about the volume of random poops these well-fed pooches continually deposited around their sprawling $9 million California manse.
Fast forward a few years, and the Prince of Darkness and his missus have decided to open a doggie day care center on four acres of their estate in England. It’s true!
The Brit power couple have partnered with a dog trainer named Francesca Maddock, who has applied for a Change of Use permit with the county. Planning to use the proposed day care for his own (now six) pooches, the heavy metal rocker is understandably over the moon because someone else can stoop and scoop his poochie poop.
The center will be able to care for up to 30 dogs and these lucky boys will have full access to the four acres of prime Buckinghamshire country pasture throughout the day. Pick-up and delivery included!
And while the application will be heard June 17 at the Chiltern District Council, there’s no word on whether the big Oz will be present. Apparently he’s prepping for a mini US tour with former band mate guitarist Zakk Wylde. Zed and Oscar can’t wait to visit – Zed is a huge Sabbath fan.
