A Dozen Reasons Why Basil is My Valentine

My-Furry-Valentine.jpg

Love it or hate it Valentine’s Day has arrived, and even if there’s no other significant other to share this romance-filled day, we’ve still got our dogs and they love us no matter what.

To quote my other half, “I’m a lucky girl” but not just for the reason he thinks - that I have him for my boyfriend - but because I have my utterly adorable Basil, who stole my heart the moment I clapped eyes on him. So in the absence of the dozen red roses I knew I wouldn’t get, here’s a dozen reasons why Basil Barkarama is my furry Valentine …

Give a Dog a Home: Battersea’s “Undateables”

Domino.jpg

I’m a huge fan of Channel 4’s Undateables programme so I'm LOVING this clever Valentine’s campaign from Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, designed to highlight some of their loneliest dogs, who are in search of their perfect partner.

The home has identified its most undateable dogs, with the hope that their potential pup parents will see past their minor imperfections and give them a forever home to call their own. While the dog charity successfully re-homed thousands of dogs last year, it seems that some need an extra helping hand when it comes to meeting their perfect match ...

Launch: Poppy & Rufus Stylish Dog Range

Poppy--Rufus-lead.jpg

I’ve been dying to tell you about Poppy & Rufus ever since I met the brand's founders Sue and Louise at last year’s Discover Dogs but I’ve had to sit tight until such time that their beautifully British dog products were available for your to paw over online. Poppyandrufus.co.uk is now open for business and I strongly recommend you pay them a visit.

First things first let’s talk dogs! Poppy is a working Cocker Spaniel Poppy and Rufus is a Jack Russell, Yorkie and Shi-tzu mix. Their namesake brand was born out of their owners’ (Sue & Louise) frustration in being able to find a functional and stylish dog bed that they didn’t find dull, predictable or kitsch. One thing led to another and their launch collection includes an extensive range of items for you and the dog for use at home and on the go …

Looking Forward: Changes, Goals & Motivations in 2014

Alex--Basil.jpg

Happy New Year! We hope you had a fantastic Christmas break and are all set for a cracking 2014. Our Christmas was pretty low key – spending time with loved ones, long walks on the beach, heaps of food, too much drink and plenty of snuggle time with our favourite dog – Basil Barkarama.

2013 wasn't half bad but we're excited to have a fresh new year to sink our teeth into. While we’re not ones for resolutions, we like to shake things up with changes, new goals and motivations so in 2014 we’ll be …
