Review: Mabel & Mu

mabel and mu“Dare to be Different”, that is the catch phrase of Mabel and Mu, they aim to make collars for those of us that like to be different, and who doesn’t love to be a little bit special. Mable and Mu is a small, British company, local to us in Epsom, Surrey. They sell a range of dog collars, cat collars, leads and other accessories in bright, eye-catching designs. Their main aim is to produce top quality, highly secure and durable products that are also very pleasing on the eye. Deborah, who own M&M, has been a seamstress and designer all her life. She made the decision to change professional direction and Mabel and Mu was born. They started selling at local shows, their website was launched in 2015 and last month they exhibited at Crufts – what a great journey! Mabel and Bertie, the wire fox terriers, are the family dogs at M&M. Mu originally lived with them as well but the girls did not get on so she now lives with her own loving family. Deborah wanted to keep her memory with them, hence the name of Mable and Mu. Bertie also has his own brand, a range of bow ties for humans called Bow Ties by Bertie Squillini. Continue reading

We would like to start by thanking the lovely people at Wolf Tucker for getting on board with our project.

Review: Made For Mutts

Seven collars, two bow ties and fourteen neckerchiefs. Not our total accessory collection; just those from Made For Mutts. Our love affair with MFM started when Colin was just a dot and Charlotte from MFM was still at university studying Fashion and Textiles. Months later, MFM is still our first stop for dog accessories and Charlotte, since graduating, is now devoting all her time to Made For Mutts and her newest venture, Made For Moggies. Charlotte’s star model is her gorgeous boxer, Ruby, who does a fantastic job at showing off all their accessories and convincing us that we just need their latest designs.

Made For Mutts accessories are perfect for any adventure!

Review: Protect My Pet

Protect My Pet is a service that delivers a tailor made health box for your pet delivered to your door every month. The box includes the leading brands of flea, tick and worming treatment as well as some healthy treats from Pooch & Mutt and a roll of biodegradable poo bags from Beco Pets. The boxes are designed to take away the stress of remembering when to dose your dogs and/or cats and therefore keep fleas, ticks and worms at bay. Quite simply, when your box arrives, it’s time to treat! Whilst we are interested in alternative method of protecting against the little nasties, after our issues with fleas from kennels earlier this year we will be sticking with the medicated treatments for now.

Review: Lupin Loves treats

We’ve been following the lovely Lupin on Instagram for the last few months, just waiting for an opportunity to try our his lovely homemade treats. Some of us are a little fussy *Colin and Eve* so our humans are always a little reluctant to buy different ones at the risk of rejection. Luckily for us Lupin and his humans decided to run a give-away when they reached 3000 followers and we went all out. We entered a grand total of fifteen times (apologies to any of our followers for the spamming!) and we won! We could not have been more excited and nervously waited for our treats to be baked specially for us and delivered to our door. IMG_9466.JPG Continue reading
