Dog for a day

Categories ModscapePosted on

Last week we received a special visit from an unexpected four-legged friend. Not the usual sales enquirer, but a blue heeler aptly named Bandit who had escaped from home. Our concept designer Prue spotted the curious pup wandering on the side of a busy road as she was driving to work, and managed to pick him up before he got himself into trouble. As soon as he arrived Bandit was an instant hit with the Modscape team. He received the full rock star treatment – including us literally rolling out the carpet (for him to sleep on) and a big bag of Schmackos – until his relieved and grateful owner collected him on her way home from work. It goes without saying that Bandit left a lasting impression on everyone in the Modscape office and we would like to thank him for brightening our day!
