We had lots of visitors to our stall when we did the Ardleigh car boot sale this morning. Trade really picked up when Arthur (who is now available again) and Charlie arrived. They are such friendly boys, eager to meet everybody. You would never have believed it was their first public appearance, we are so proud of them. We may have to do this sale again in the near future, it’s a great way to promote the dogs, literally thousands of people attend every week.
Many thanks to the staff at Pets at Home Martlesham for hosting another Meet and Greet for us. We took along kennel dogs Mac and L.J and foster dog Billy. All proved a real hit with the staff and customers alike. Several of our homed dogs came along to say hello and Storm liked the whole meet and greet experience so much he stayed and helped all day.
