Hi everyone and a big Happy New Year to you all!
We hope you all had a lovely Christmas break and are ready to start 2016 with a bang! After a lovely relaxing Christmas and New Year we have had a jam packed January with plenty of exciting stuff going on.
In January, our mummy had a milestone birthday when she turned 30. We got mummy some new doggy earrings and lots of cards and balloons. Mum had a lovely meal with all her very best family and friends. She was sad we weren’t allowed in the restaurant to go too – but she brought her birthday cake home and gave us a cheeky piece and on the day of her birthday she too the day off work and we all went on a lovely long walk around one our favourite parkies. The sun even came out for us and we chased squirrels and went for a swim in the lake. Mum and dad even managed to find four balls – one for each of us! We had a lovely day and want to wish our mummy a very happy birthday and tell her we love her lots 🙂
Just after mum’s birthday, all four of us had an appointment at the vets to get our doggy passports. In March, mum and dad are taking us on holiday on a road trip around Europe in our little caravan and so we need our own passports so we’re allowed to get the ferry over to France. Dolly already has a passport as she is from Romania, but some details still needed updating and she still needed her rabies jab. Our passports are all ready now and cant wait to use them for our holidays! Mum and dad love travelling so they are so excited they can take us on adventures on their travels. Whilst we are there, we are going to visit the German branch of Love Underdogs to visit a special friend of ours – Lavender. Lavender is a tri-pawed Underdog who was moved to Germany when she didn’t get a family in England. Instead of buying mummy a Christmas present this year, mummy’s friend instead decided to sponsor Lavender in mum’s name so mummy want to visit her and meet her and take her out for the day when we go to Germany.
Speaking of travels – this year mum and dad have two important trips coming up and they need your help! In July, they’re going to Romania to volunteer in the dog shelter where Dolly came from. If anyone has any spare/unused pet products to donate, mum and dad would be super grateful as they’re trying to collect as much supplies to take to the shelter dogs as possible! Anyone that has pet shampoo, blankets, toys, leads, bowls or anything else they no longer use and can donate, please get in touch and mum and dad will arrange to come and collect them from you. We already have lots of bits donated by our kind customers and friends, but the more the better! Huge thank you to everyone who has already donated!
Then in October, mum and dad are visiting China on holiday, but while they’re there they’re doing a two day trek of the Great Wall to raise money for Love Underdogs and Animals Asia. To find out more about our Trek or to show your support by sponsoring us, please click here.
This month. we’ve also had our old pal Zeus to stay for the night. His family had a family party to go to in another part of the country so Zeus came to stay with us for a one night sleepover. Zeus is only a pup so has bags of energy and always wants to play. By night time though, he’s worn out and ready for cuddles with us all on the sofa. He especially loves our chickens and was fascinated when he could see them on the windowsill through the bathroom window!
Next month, it’s Valentine’s Day and mum is busy baking big heart shaped doggy cakes and Alfie’s Gammon & Pineapple Hearts, so us pooches can celebrate the day of love like everyone else! We are delivering on Valentine’s day (Sunday 14th February) so get your orders in now!
We are also busy preparing our new treat flavours for 2016 – which will also include cat treats for our feline friends and treats specially to help with conditions. We’re sure you’ll all love them so watch this space.
We’ve even started booking on all our spring and summer shows – check out our events page to see where our stall will be selling our treats this season. Come along and see us to try our new treats- we can’t wait to seed you!
That’s all for now guys so we’ll be back at the end of February.
Loads of love and woofs! Meg, Alfie, Roxi & Dolly xxxx
