FIRST becoming a television star, it now looks like Todmorden’s Lucky Dog is becoming a jet-setter!

Since appearing as part of illusionist Derren Brown’s The Experiments: The Secret of Luck, screened on Channel 4 last year, the lucky dog, resident in Centre Vale Park, has certainly gained a following.

For a start, he (or she) has a Twitter account (@LuckyDog_Tod, with 268 followers at the time of writing), has undertaken a few good deeds and started travelling around the world!

Before Christmas the dog was able to sort out a transport connection problem via Twitter and the New Year has seen him (or her) heading round the world.

He has sent a postcard from Thailand to Todmorden Information Centre with the message “In Thailand elephants are lucky, so here’s some luck for you - zap!”
