Dogs on Show at Bingley Hall

We had a trip to Bingley Hall this weekend as spectators at the Stafford District Canine Society dog show.

It was our furst time at an event like this and wow what a day. There were six show rings where all manner of different dogs paraded themselves after being primped and preened for days by their humans.

The pugs were in ring 6 and I have to say all looked fabulous. Apparently I’m classed as a toy dog, well I’m a real dog I can tell you! The Frenchie’s not looking too shabby either strutted their furry stuff in ring five and are classed as utility dogs. Dobermans and Rottweilers are also classed as utility dogs so George was feeling particularly hench.

It was all in the preparation. Having chats with fellow four legged friends and their humans it seems they spend days preparing, bathing, trimming, brushing and pampering. They also attend some strange sounding place called ring classes which helps you to walk on a lead properly and stand like a champion. Some dogs we spoke to say they have been in training and preparing from 8 weeks old.

Well I`ve decided that rolling in the mud and other unmentionable smelly stuff is much more fun although George believes with his pedigree that a Crufts trophy should surely fall at his paws.

You can’t get anywhere without preparation and planning, so if you need a paw with planning and preparing your marketing pick up the dog and bone or bark us an email and we will get the humans to have a chat with you.

The Marketing Dogs: Best In Snow Winners

Bonjour & Ni Hao Humans,

Last Monday we were sad that all the snow had disappeared, so we put together an email asking for you lovely humans to send us pictures of your pets in the snow.

We really enjoyed pawing over the pictures and seeing your pets having as much fun as we did.

The humans said that we could pick the three Best In Snow pictures. We received so many pictures that we really couldn’t choose just three. We put our brains to work and decided to get around it by choosing three Best In Snow each and one more for good luck! Aren’t we crafty?

Without further ado, here is our Top 6 Best In Snow, in no particular order because they’re all so pawesome!

The Marketing Dogs: George Is Back To His Usual Self.

Bonjour Humans,

It’s been a long time, I hope you’ve coped well without me.

As you may know a couple of weeks ago I had two operations, neither of which were particularly nice. Thankfully I was up to my eyeballs in painkillers, which made things very interesting and confusing. You know how weird Tramadol makes you feel. Try being a dog on Tramadol.

Me and Chops had last week off work, after Dad’s hand injury, which meant I spent the week sunbathing and sleeping, which really helped me get over my ordeal.

I’ve recovered well, at both ends, shame the dignity hasn’t recovered yet mind you. I also wanted to say thank you to those of you who asked about me and a big thank you to Morgan Signs & Design who sent me and Dad a lovely get well soon card. (I agree with you guys, dogs should be carried up escalators!)

I’ve now returned to work, which means all bins will be knocked over daily and Rob’s bin will be toppled at the very least five times a day.

In between all of that I’m covering for one of our designers, so I’m tackling some website visuals too.

Ah yes, I wanted to tell you something important about websites; it’s not all about the design you know, a website needs to be functional.

Functionality is more important than design; nothing puts a dog off a website like a great design but rubbish functionality. Oh and make sure it works well on iBones.

If you want your website to be designed from scratch or redesigned properly with design and functionality in mind, give us a call on 01543 495 752 and have a chat with us to find out what we can do for you.

On that note, it’s time to get back to spinning around on an empty chair or annoying Rob. (He doesn’t know that I live to knock his bin over)

Au revoir humans.

Bonjour humans,

As you can see my nose job was a success!

George human nose
….Just kidding. This is me and not a human nose in sight, see.
Both of my operations went well and I’m not feeling too bad, a little sore and sleepy.

I’ve heard that a lot of people have been ringing up asking about me and I must say I’m very flattered. You can all stop fretting and worrying now (that includes you Mum and Dad), I’m fine!

I spent most of last night in doggy intensive care in an oxygen tent, receiving one on one care from a lovely nurse at the Willows Veterinary Centre and Referral Service, a dog could definitely get used to that kind of care.

My happiness was short lived as I woke to the news that I would be meeting my mortal enemy, the bath.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, I noticed that my legs have been shaved in patches! I look ridiculous.

Jokes aside, I have nothing to complain about, I’m healthy and the best part is I’ve been told I’ll have a louder bark now. That will make warding off any rude door to door salesmen even easier.

For the next few days I’ve got to reduce my activity and take it easy, which means no creating landing pages or designing leaflets for me.

If you’re thinking about using landing pages for your website, please get in touch with my humans. Call them on 01543 495 752 or email them on

The Marketing Dogs: George’s Update.

Bonjour humans;

I’ve been informed by my humans that some of you have been a little worried about me, so I thought I’d let you know what was going on.
Despite enduring far too many people prodding and poking at me, everything looks like it will be okay, apart from my dignity, I’m not sure that will ever return.

Sometime soon I will have to undergo a small operation, which you guys would really rather I don’t go into the details of. However for those interested (You might want to put your lunch down) I was originally diagnosed with a rectal tumour, however thankfully it’s just a polyp.
At the same time, I’m going to have a nose job; despite what my humans may tell you, it’s not cosmetic, (I like my nose the way it is thank you very much), I have Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome, so the operation will improve my breathing.

I’m going to feel very ruff afterwards and won’t know what to do with myself after being battered at both ends, so I’d love it if you guys could continue to show me lots of love and attention.

So, to reiterate, don’t worry. Got it?

Love and paws,
George – The Marketing Dogs.
