Keith Richards' doggy hobby

Keith Richards' favourite hobby is dog-walking.
The Rolling Stones guitarist, who is notorious for his hellraising behaviour, insists he enjoys nothing more than taking the family pet out for some exercise.
He said: "When I'm at home I take the dog out for a walk. I take my kids out. I have a family it's not all rock 'n' roll. But that is what I do, rock 'n' roll comes naturally to me."
Despite claiming he has calmed down, Keith - who has been married to former model Patti Hansen for 24 years and has two adult daughters, Theodora and Alexandra, with her - recently admitted he "smokes weed all the time".
The 64-year-old musician - who was treated for heroin addiction in the late 70s - claims marijuana is now his only illegal vice, and insists he never dabbles in hard drugs.
He said: "I smoke my head off. I smoke weed all the time. But that's all I take, all I do. I do smoke and I've got some really good hash."
The rocker has been arrested on five separate occasions for drug-related offences, and at one point was believed to have regular full-body blood transfusions to clean out his system.
Last year, Keith caused controversy when he claimed to have snorted his late father's ashes.
