Meet Tommy AKA ‘Pip’!
It’s official – we have found our new T H March mascot! Thank you so much to all the kind dog lovers out there who took the time to enter their wonderful canine companions into our competition. We received entries from far and wide and we genuinely loved all of them! It was a very close-run competition but eventually Pip, a rescue dog from Scotland, emerged as the winner. Pip’s owner, Iona, told us: “We got Pip (Piper) about 18 months ago from the Second Chance rescue kennels in Fife http://www.secondchancekennels.org
They had his picture on their website, as one of their ‘Homeless Hounds’. When we first got him, he’d try and drink tea from your mug! He also couldn’t walk down the stairs. He could climb up but would end up having to roll back down again. It took a few tries to master a slightly more normal technique! My favourite thing about him is the warm, waggy welcome I get when I come home from work. When anyone’s feeling a bit down, Pip will snuggle into them and try and cheer them up. He loves to play and has endless enthusiasm and energy! He and my son enjoy rough and tumble games in the garden and he loves long walks in the countryside too. Everyone thinks their dog is special, but we all love Pip and know how lucky we were to find him.”
We’re so happy Pip has finally found his forever home, and with his new career in show business, his future looks brighter than ever! Well done Pip! Our sincerest thanks to all the wonderful owners and their dogs who took part in our ‘Find Tommy’ competition.
