just in and sitting with a hot drink and thinking about the wonderful evening we’ve just had, Mojo and Freddie were absolute stars (let’s not talk about all the fluffy hoods that got barked at eh Freddie 😂😂)
We got lots of interest in the book mainly from children , but lots of adults too! Several poodle selfies were created and the dogs got plenty of fuss and attention.
Lovely India was our first customer and mega Poodle fan, and an absolute delight to meet, she was lovely with the dogs and had a go at a game I devised last night ~ pin the tail on the Mojo! Chocolate for all who had a go. India and her daddy came back later and offered to fetch me a drink as I was on my own! How very kind of them both.
Then I was mega surprised to see one of Freddie and Mojo’s reading buddies from last year, Alfie, he was always so nice with the dogs and a brilliant little reader, Freddie always climbed all over Alfie at school and they really were great pals, so his lovely mum and dad treated him to a copy of our book and both dogs pawtographed it for him. How we miss young Alfie reading to us and his lovely shy smile as the dogs greeted him, we do see him but only briefly as we walk through year 2 to get to year 1, but his mum told me he now reads to his own dog! How cool is that 😍😍
A lovely friend Karen came and helped me for an hour or so and brought me food and a hot drink, and I did a live Instagram feed where ‘twolilpoodles’ dared me to ask for a free sausage for Freddie, which I didn’t get lol as the owner was not impressed with me asking!
I’m sure it won’t be our last market, we had a great time!
