A Ruff Day at Work

A Ruff Day at Work



Today is Take Your Dog to Work Day, a day that promotes man’s long and enduring friendship with dogs with the added aim of encouraging dog adoption.


Down at our shop in Kelso’s Horsemarket every day is Take Your dog to Work Day for shop manager, Rob and his waggy tailed companion Brody. Who is as constant a feature – though most would claim a bigger draw – as Rob himself.

Of course Brody is not the only A Hume Hound. Many of our staff have pooches of equal pedigree and being country hounds they participate in a range of country pursuits:

Dog Adoption



Should you feel tempted to give a dog a home please do consider adopting a dog. This short video from RSPCA is the place to start and the link on their website will help you find a shelter where you can find a good match for your needs.


You’d have to be barking not to want a dog!
