Having just come back from a short break in Spain, I couldn’t wait to tell you about some of the funny, cute and mainly bonkers doggy sights I have seen! If you have ever been to Spain, I’m sure you will know the Spanish ladies (and even some of the men) have a major passion for little dogs!

Not a day went by, where I didn’t see the cutest little pooches being walked, carried or even pushed along the promenade.

Chihuahuas appeared to be the favourite, but other popular breeds included Yorkies, Lhasa Apso, Pomeranians, Maltese, King Charles, Westies and Dachshunds.

In fact, I was quite amazed at the lack of large dogs I saw, if any at all!

Some of my favourite Spanish doggy sightings included:

- The lady with 2 Lhasa Apso’s dressed in Real Madrid football kits!

- The tendency for Spanish ladies to push their dogs along in what I can only describe as custom made pushchairs.

- The family with the matching outfits, including the dog!

- Some of the most amazing doggy hairstyles I have ever seen, seriously we're talking the just stepped out of a Salon look, Cheryl Cole eat your heart out!

- The very smartly dressed, older Spanish gentleman walking the cutest Yorkshire Terrier, dressed head to to paw in Pink, including the hair bobbles. Plus, I think I even saw a Swarovski crystal thrown in for good measure.

It got to the point where it was more noticeable if you had a dog that wasn’t wearing the latest accessories.

So if you like to put the odd accessories on your pet pooch, you’ve got a long way to go before you’re in the Spanish pampered pooch league!

We just can’t believe what an amazing first month in business we have had. After all those months of researching, planning and preparing for our new Pet business, I don’t think either us quite expected Pads ‘n’ Pets to get off to such a flying start!

Over the past four weeks we’ve been busy beavering away with our Marketing, getting out and about locally, door dropping our leaflets. We have to say hats off to all the postmen out there; we have a new found respect for those guys!! We’ve also been meeting other local business owners, who have all been so lovely and supportive, which is fantastic.

We’ve been getting busy on Social Media too, getting our name out there as the go to people for Dog Walking and Pet Sitting in South Leeds! We’ve even managed to win an award on Twitter (we were shocked too!); we won Bright Pig SEO Business of the Week! From this we gained lots of additional followers and lots of retweets, so lots of great exposure for us! We’re also now listed in The Good Dog Guide, which can only be a good thing.

Most importantly, our hard work seems to be paying off as we have had lots of enquiries for our pet services and have bookings and jobs under our belt already. Yey, all we can say is long may it continue.

So thanks to everyone for their fabulous support so far, we are very humbled and grateful.

So what next for Pads ‘n’ Pets… onwards and upwards, oh and a new blog, which we hope you will enjoy reading! ;)
