Blue Peter badges all round!

Did you see Blue Peter yesterday?
It was lovely Blue Peter dog Barney's second birthday so they had lots of lovely doggie content. And they finally aired the special report on Barney becoming our November front cover dog - what a supermodel he is!
It's a lovely segment. It's about 15 minutes in if you don't want to watch the whole show - but I personally loved the bit on making gnomes for the film premiere and the couple of guys making extreme jelly's (Blue Peter - it's an institution!) and don't miss the finale at the end with Tina and Chandi in the studio.
Three Dogs Today cover stars in one TV programme! Look out for the amazing Qannix, the Samoyed that was our cover star in May 2010. What a star!

Here's the link to BBCiPlayer which will probably only work for about a week. It will be repeated on Sunday on CBBC 11am - click here for more info.
Here's the link to iPlayer - remember it's approx 15 mins in!
See how many people/dogs you can spot!  My son Kieran is on there, his dad Kevin who does our illustrations and their dog Isla! Allen and EJ, Tina and Chandi, a cute GSP pup... sure there's more! Qannix of course. They've packed ever such a lot in.
Happy Birthday Barney, we loved having you at our photoshoot!
And if you think it looked like fun, we are currently searching for Pointers, Lhasa Apso and Lagotto for our next photo shoot. And we'd love to hear from anyone with puppies of any type, we do like to cuddle pups! We'll be having a shoot in February - exact date and venue yet to be announced but Berkshire/Surrey area. Sadly our lovely regular studio in Slough is no more, the end of an era, nearly 20 years of doggie shoots there. The fantastic Tim Rose is still our photographer of course and he has now gone freelance and we're searching for a dog-friendly venue at the moment.
If you are interested in attending our next shoot send your details to
And if you want to see more film of one of our photoshoots (amateur footage!) go to this link....
And here's a sneaky peek of the next cover model! Boon, a gorgeous rescued Jack Russell cross... out February 10th!

For your next cover star, how about Susanne Jaffa's Buck? Last Saturday Ob Ch Amberslade Buckaneer(who won the dog obedience at Crufts 2010) became the first dual champion (obedience and working trials) for 30 years. He's the first dog to achieve this ever, and the first Australian Shepherd. Details here:
