Does anyone else ask for a dog every year after year for Christmas and is still waiting? Yeh me too, I’m hoping this year is the one however considering none of my presents under the tree are barking yet I don’t want to get my hopes up.

Anyway, if you’re lucky enough to already own a pup, I have the best news for you! Sunday 16th of December The Refuge are running a Christmas pet fancy dress competition! (I’m screaming with excitement!)

Your dogs will be judged on your best attempt to dress as one of the following categories; Best Dressed Rein-dog (your dog doesn’t have to be dressed as a reindeer to win), best dancing dog, and of course the cutest dog!

All dogs welcome with prizes for the best dressed! Prizes to be won including Sunday Roast for the family and winning dog. What are you seriously waiting for? This is 100% going to be the best day of the year, so get yourselves down!
