With Beethoven, Lassie, 101 Dalmatians, Lady and the Tramp, Snoopy, Pluto and Goofy – we have our fair share of loveable doggy characters that we hold close to our childhood hearts and as a nation we seem to have a soft spot for man’s best friend.
The most recent pup to take the country by storm is Pudsey – a Bichon Frise-Border Collie-Chinese Crested powder puff - a super talented six year old dog who can dance, perform and entertain thousands of people. Since winning Britain’s got Talent, Pudsey’s owner Ashleigh reports that her pet pooch has developed a taste for expensive steaks, travels in a private jet and chauffeur driven limousines! This got us wondering if any of you have a spoilt Shih-Tzu, a lovable lab, or a pampered poodle?
If you don’t have your own pet pooch, we have a faithful friend waiting for you! Our Art and Craft experts have been busy with some ’make and dos’ to keep you and your little ones entertained this summer. Our cool Sock Dog will undoubtedly become a loveable friend with its cute rainbow ears and purple eye patch. If you’d prefer to walk with royalty, you can create your very own charming Corgi - just download our FREE pattern via the Activity Zone and get stitching. Both designer doggies are great fun and easy to make and you can get even more creative by adding wacky buttons for a nose and eyes or even a glittery diamante collar!
We’d love to hear all about your animals too, please share your funny pet pictures by uploading them to our facebook page or tweet us at @GaltToys. We’re already looking forward to oo-ing and ahh-ing at their cute fluffy faces and your homemade creations.
