In November we fell in love with Elsa.
We hadn't intended to. It just sort of happened.
And as soon as possible we brought her home to Arundel.
She has settled well and is a fantastic companion with a Lovely temperament.
Customers, like us, adore her.
The other day a new customer appeared in our shop.
As well as being delightful, it turns out she is a dog trainer. Manna from... So very soon we will be charting Elsa and our progress in learning together.
It will be on the blog and FB.
As for Nikki, she is looking to set up training sessions here.
She already has a successful training business in Wimbledon.
We are very excited.
Her website is www.arundelsuperdogs.com
and FB page https://www.facebook.com/search/top/…
We have some fabulous new pieces coming into the warehouse very soon.
Nass and I are excited as they are great finds.
We have also been working on decoupage pieces over the Christmas break.
So very soon we will be revamping in the warehouse.
Heres a taste of what we have at the moment.

Five Years On
This link just popped up on my memories on FB
I'd forgotten about doing those 7 years of nights
while we were building up the business.
Crikey it was stressful.
Adolescents With Challenging Behaviour.
Quite an experience.
Glad I did it, but wouldn't want to repeat it.
It was hard.
Working nights and keeping up with the business was hard enough.
But the kids we worked with had experienced some pretty tough times.
They really were challenging.
I'm not sure anything prepares you for it.
Nice to see many of them came through
and are now grown with children of their own.
Some are on my FB so it's great to see how they've done.
Have a great day
