It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for… Bowie the pug has returned, and this time he’s been having a blast dressing up as Father Christmas. We couldn’t think of anybody better for the job!

But Christmas is a big task for just one little dog – Bowie needs some help. So here’s a double doggy bonus for you – he’s been joined by his partner in crime Mr. Squiggles, who is playing the part of head elf.

It was their job to make sure that everything at MOO HQ was running as smoothly as Santa’s grotto in the run up to Christmas. Dressed in their finest Christmas sweaters and hats (hand knitted by our lovely friends at Wool and the Gang – only the best for Bowie and Mr. Squiggles) they made the rounds to make sure everything was ticking along.

It’s a busy time of year for Santa, so we were pretty pleased that he (and his head elf) managed to take time out of their busy schedule for a visit.

During their time at MOO HQ, they stopped by the warehouse to help out with all the Christmas orders, before saying a quick (and cuddly) hello to all of the MOO Crew.

After that, it was time for the big photo shoot! Dressed in their finest, they took it all in their stride (naturally). Oh, and we should mention that if your dog could use a stylish winter warming knit, our friends over at Wool and the Gang have got this pattern, appropriately named ‘Hot Dawg’, free to download from their blog. Because, well, who can say no to this much cuteness…

Once they were happy that we had Christmas all wrapped up (sorry, that’s a terrible joke, but we couldn’t resist!) off they went back to work!

We hope you’ve enjoyed some of the pictures from their visit. You can check out the full shoot on Pinterest – but prepare yourself for lots of “Awws!”

We just want to say a big thank you to Bowie and Mr. Squiggles for stopping by (and for making our day!)

Bowies Grotte

Auf diesen Moment haben Sie alle gewartet… Bowie, der Hund, ist wieder da und diesmal ist er als Weihnachtsmann verkleidet.

 

Aber es kommt noch besser – als Verstärkung hat er seinen Komplizen Mr. Squiggles mitgebracht, sozusagen als Bonus, und der spielt die freche Elfe (eine Rolle, die ihm ein bisschen zu sehr liegt, finden wir).

 

Die beiden haben ihr bestes gegeben, um in unserem Büro auszuhelfen. Sie haben beim Verpacken der Bestellungen geholfen, ihre Runden gedreht und gute Laune verbreitet. Und bei all dem sahen die beiden einfach bezaubernd aus (danke an Wool and The Gang für die handgestrickten Outfits).

 

Wir hoffen, Sie finden die Bilder genau so niedlich wie wir. Auf Pinterest finden Sie viele weitere Fotos von Bowies großem Tag.

La grotte de Bowie

Le moment que vous avez tant attendu est enfin arrivé : Bowie le Pug est de retour et cette fois, il s’est bien amusé à porter son costume de Père Noël. Et il n’est pas venu seul, son acolyte, M. Squiggles, l’a rejoint pour jouer le rôle de l’elfe – et ça lui va (un peu trop) à ravir.

Il avaient pour tâche d’assurer le déroulement parfait des opérations au QG de MOO. Vêtus de leurs plus beaux habits de Noël et chapeaux (tricotés à la main par nos très bons amis de chez Wool and the Gang – rien que le meilleur pour Bowie et M. Squiggles ) ils ont fait leur tour des bureaux et n’ont relevé aucune faille (pour le moment).

It was their job to make sure that everything at MOO HQ was running as smoothly as Santa’s grotto in the run up to Christmas. Dressed in their finest Christmas sweaters and hats (hand knitted by our lovely friends at Wool and the Gang – only the best for Bowie and Mr. Squiggles) they made the rounds to make sure everything was ticking along.

C’est une période de l’année très dense pour le Père Noël, nous étions donc très heureux que lui et son elfe aient réussi à nous accorder un peu de temps dans leur agenda très chargé.

Durant leur passage au QG de MOO, ils se sont arrêtés à l’entrepôt pour aider à confectionner toutes les commandes de Noël, avant de dire bonjour et faire un câlin rapide à toute l’équipe.

Après cela, il était temps de procéder à la grande séance photo ! Vêtus de leurs plus beaux atouts, ils ont offert leur meilleur profil à la caméra.

Une fois satisfaits de voir que tout était emballé, ils sont retourné au travail.

Nous espérons que vous apprécierez les photos de leur visite. Vous pouvez consulter la série complète sur Pinterest mais préparez-vous à beaucoup de ” AWW ! “.

Nous voulons juste dire un grand merci à Bowie et M. Squibbles de s’être arrêtés chez nous.

La cabaña de Bowie

Ha llegado el momento que todos estabais esperando… El perro Bowie está de vuelta y se lo está pasando bomba disfrazándose de Papá Noel.

Pero esta vez tenemos sorpresa por partida doble: su cómplice Mr. Squiggles ha venido con él y está revolucionando la cabaña con su disfraz de elfo travieso (¡parece hecho a su medida!).

Durante todo el día el dúo se aseguró de que todo en la sede de MOO fuese como la seda – como la casa de Papa Noel en Navidad. Vestidos con sus mejores galas – unos jerseys y gorros de la mano de nuestros amigos de Wool and the Gang.

Es un periodo de mucho trabajo para Papá Noel, así que nos encanta que él (y su elfo) se las arreglaran para sacar tiempo para hacernos una visita.

Mientras estuvieron en MOO, hicieron una parada en el almacén para ayudar con los pedidos navideños y dedicar un rápido (y tierno) “hola” a todo el equipo.

En cuanto se aseguraron que todo estaba envuelto para la Navidad, se fueron a trabajar.

Esperamos que os hayan gustado algunas de las fotografías que hicimos. Podéis echar un vistazo a toda la sesión en nuestro Pinterest.

Tan solo nos queda dar las gracias a Bowie y Mr. Squiggles por pasarse por aquí – y hacer que fuese un día genial.

Bowie, il nostro Babbo Natale

È arrivato il momento tanto atteso… Il carlino Bowie è tornato e, questa volta, se l’è spassata travestendosi da Babbo Natale. Ci è sembrato perfetto per questo ruolo!

Tuttavia, occuparsi del Natale da solo diventa un po’ complicato e Bowie ha bisogno di aiuto. Ed ecco il bonus, appunto…i cani sono due: Bowie è affiancato dal suo braccio destro, Mr Squiggles, che fa la parte dell’elfo.

Volevano assicurarsi che le cose a MOO stessero andando per il verso giusto e che tutto fosse pronto per il Natale. Vestiti con i loro più eleganti maglioni e cappelli natalizi (fatti a mano dai nostri cari amici di Wool and the Gang – solo il meglio per Bowie e Mr Squiggles), hanno controllato che tutto filasse liscio.

In questo periodo Babbo Natale ha molto da fare, quindi siamo contenti che, insieme al suo assistente, sia riuscito a trovare il tempo per venire a trovarci.

Quando erano nella sede di MOO, si sono fermati in magazzino per dare una mano con gli ordini di Natale, prima di salutare affettuosamente tutto il team di MOO.

E poi è arrivata l’ora del grande servizio fotografico! Vestiti al meglio, si sono rassegnati a posare (naturalmente).

Dopo essersi assicurati che tutto fosse pronto per il Natale, ci hanno salutato e sono tornati al lavoro!

Speriamo che le foto vi piacciano. Potete guardare l’intero servizio fotografico su Pinterest…resterete di stucco!

Vogliamo ringraziare infinitamente Bowie e Mr Squiggles per la loro visita (e per averci fatto passare una giornata fantastica)!
