They say don't work with children or animals, but they're obviously not aware of the 405's obsession for all things cat-related. Wait, we mean dog-related. Yes, dogs.

Following our recent feature on Black Moth and Iggy, we decided to send Phil Smithies to hang out with Peace's Dominic Boyce and his dog Chili. They make a lovely pair.

Firstly, what's your dog's name and what made you pick it (the name and the dog)?
She's called Chili, (she's actually my girlfriend's dog, but we all live together.) We picked her up from Battersea Rescue just over a year ago, and she was already named Chili, and it seemed to fit. As soon as she was put up on their website, we called up straight away and reserved her, she seemed perfect.

When did you get the dog and how would you describe your relationship?
March 2014. I feel like I am usually the bad cop when she misbehaves, as my girlfriend tends to let her get away with more. We're still best buds though. If I go away on tour for a while, when I come home, she tends to give me the cold shoulder for a bit, but I know she's missed me really.

What's your dog's favourite toy?
She loves a kong, especially full of peanut butter!

Do you think your dog likes your music?
She's more of an R&B girl, but she tolerates it to be nice.

Has your dog shown any musical talent?
Nothing yet, and I'm trying not to be a pushy parent. She's only two though, so there's plenty of time.

If your dog was a famous jazz musician, who would she be?
Merry Clayton. More Gospel/Soul, but I can imagine her wailing those choruses in 'Gimme Shelter'.

Does your dog have any special skills?
Just all the classics really, she will fetch balls all day long, great swimmer, and she's getting pretty good round a "dogstical course".

What is your favourite celebrity dog (real or fictional)?
Gromit. The unsung hero for so many. Anyone who can lay train track down as fast as he can, and take down a terrifying criminal penguin, deserves some serious respect.

Lastly, what do you have coming up (non-dog related) that we should know about?
We (Peace) are about to head out on an Australian tour for a few weeks, and then after that it's straight in with festivals. Lots in Europe, including Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds and TITP.
