Shocked mum muzzles foul-mouthed toy mutt

'If you're happy and you know it, f*ck with me'

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

An Oxfordshire mum who bought her nipper a singing puppy toy was obliged to contact the tabloids when the fluffy mutt let rip with a torrent of "f*cks".

Leigh McPherson, of Banbury, coughed up 22 quid at Asda for the My Pal Violet, expecting it to provide innocent entertainment for four-month old baby Mia.

However, one of the musical ditties on offer appears to invite wide-eyed kiddies who are "happy and you know it" to "f*ck with me".

A stunned McPherson told the Sun: "I couldn't believe it. I played it back three or four times. There is no mistaking what Violet is saying."

The manufacturer LeapFrog Toys defended that the dog sings with a Yank accent, and is actually saying "bark". Judge for yourselves here, in a YouTube vid uploaded by another filth-spattered kid's auntie:

Whatever the truth, the company has promised to send McPherson a non-swearing replacement. A spokeswoman assured: "To avoid future voice misinterpretations, a new recording is now on the shelves." ®
