London: U2 frontman Bono, who made an appearance at last night’s GQ awards in London, revealed how he’s been spending his summer, walking his new dog around Dublin.

“I’ve been in Dublin for the last week or so. I was in France but came home for a while,” he told the Sun newspaper.

“I rang some pals and asked what they thought I should do to keep busy. One said, ‘Just walk the dog.’ So I took the dog out with my wife. It’s a mongrel and a really strong animal.

“It dragged us through the streets and some little kid shouted, ‘Is that dog walking you, or are you walking the dog, Bono?’

“I knew I was home. You can’t beat it,” he added.
The U2 star and bandmates Edge and Adam Clayton were at the GQ bash to receive the Band Of The Year gong at the Royal Opera House in London.
