Stu’s dog, Pip has become our mascot and has a Pip Palace with a play dog bone placed on top outside our premises .
She is temporarily in residence whilst her dog sitter is away on holiday but appears to love being with us. Stu says that now she waits patiently by the door as he gets ready for work, wagging her little tail, saying ‘aren’t you ready yet?’ instead of curling up in her Pip blanket on the settee. Visitors always make a fuss of her, as do we, at break times.
If she can brave the snow and cold, I can see her being a permanent mascot!
