Christmas is slowly coming to the shop. This can only mean endless days of being dressed up and photographed for all the social media sites mum uses! On the plus side, we usually get extra treats if we’re really good 😍

What on earth are these silly things? Why can’t mum model them herself?

I am not impressed!

This is getting very worrying. How many more does she have? We will be demanding extra treats for this!

We think this is the final straw. Dexter in pyjamas!! 😂😂😂😂 

***update…. we have been rewarded with extra sausages so we are very happy. Also lots of people have said we are such good boys – which makes mum happy too ❤️ ***

Christmas continued!

This is me! I’m in the middle – with my 2 lovely staff on either side. They’ve been wonderful, I couldn’t manage without them….

The Pet Shop Girls!

We’ve had a busy few days in the shop leading up to Christmas and I almost forgot Archie and Dexters Christmas turkey and teddy from Santa. However, thankfully I did remember at the last minute (before we sold them all) and they ended up under the tree ready for Christmas morning!

Pressie opening time!

Christmas morning was very exciting and the boys loved their presents. Both toys are still in tact, despite a lot of ragging, chewing and games of tug of war with them!


Dexter decided the turkey was his….

…..until Archie decided he wanted to share!

Christmas 2015 done!

More modelling!

We have had another Christmas delivery! Some more jumpers and some very cute snoods! Yes, snoods for dogs!!

Of course we had to have another try on and a few pictures! For Archie and Dexter, it’s just another day at work! (They have to earn their gravy ones somehow!)

Archie is modelling one of our new doggie snood!
When we first heard about the snoods, we weren’t sure how many to order! A new product is always a gamble….would people like them…..more importantly, would people buy them! We eventually decided to order a dozen. I’ve bought 2 so at least 17% of the stock has sold!!

Archie is really getting into the modellin business!
Archie was being so helpful demonstrating the winter clothing range! Here he is wearing one of the new Christmas jumpers. These are from Rosewood Pet Products..
