Puppy dog tales

Dogs are have always been loyal companions, ready in the mornings with a lick and wag of the tail. Willing to be dressed up in silly clothes and to cheer you up when you are feeling blue. Back in the day this was no different.

Take a trip down memory lane with your trusty wagging best friend by your side ....

Dogs are always willing to please and be put on show:
