Blake & Bull's 12 Pets of Christmas 2018!

Back in the beginning of November we invited the Blake & Bull community to adorn their furry and feathered friends in Christmas garb and ask them to dutifully sit in front of the family range cooker!

We were treated to some fab entries and had a lot of fun choosing our twelve. Here they are - 

Day 1, 13th December  

This purrfect feline is Stella, known to her human Jess as 'King of The Aga'. 


Day 2, December 14th -

Suki is the second furry friend from our 12 Pets Of Christmas competition..

Suki does look a little bit sulky here, waiting for her Christmas dinner! -  "Surely it can't be 2 hours before the turkey appears!"


Day 3, December 15th -

Here is Daisy "She has her paws crossed that Santa fills her stocking with new toys! She certainly lives up to her nickname “Crazy Daisy”. Her party trick is to sneeze on command!" Says her human Rachel! She looks like mischief in ALL the Right ways! 


Day 4, December 16th - 

"This is a photo of Tess; who is 2 years of age in her favourite spot in front of the Aga range cooker. She is both pretty and naughty in equal measures!" Karen, Tess's mum. 


Day 5, December 17th

Thank you to Susanne, Mia's human, for this fab little pic. Such a glamorous canine, elegantly carrying off that tinsel with pride! Eyeing something up on the cooker maybe?!


Day 6, December 18th

Introducing Enya the Newfoundland, our day 6 winner from our 12 Pets of Christmas competition! Thank you, Sally, Happy newfoundland -Noel! 


Day 7, December 19th - 

These pups need no introduction! They stole the show a few weeks ago when we featured them as our pup-pic! This is Daisy the Cockapoo and Tia the German Shepherd! They are our day 7 winners from our 12 Pets of Christmas competition! Thank you, Connie, for the pic!


Day 8, December 20th 

It is our pleasure to share Poppy the lurcher with you as our 8th 12 Pets of Christmas winner. Clare, poppy's mum, had her range cooker refurbished by us back in the summer, I think that Poppy is happy with the job and her coordinating dog bed! 😍


Day 9, December 21st

Here is Santa paws (Robin) resting in his favourite place! Robin is our rather regal 9th pet from our 12 pets of Christmas competition. Thank you Kerry for the entry.

Thank you so much to Dawn who sent in this wonderfully festive & fun pic of their much-loved family pet Legs!

Day 11, December 23rd 

You might just recognise this very handsome pooch! Oscar is our 11th Pet of Christmas, he won your hearts back in mid October when his human Camilla shared her Mini-Refurb results. He is such a beautiful boy that we would not resist sharing him with you one more time!

"Poor Oscar, he loves to pose!" 


The Winner! Day 12, December 24th

Katy is a rural girl at heart. She loves long walks, home cooking, paddling in rivers, warm fires and socks and stomping in leaves with her children. After studying ‘drawing stuff’ at university in Bath, Katy spent 10 years selling wares and managing folk at Habitat in Bath. Welcoming children into her world prompted her to return to drawing things, people and places from home. This led her to us at Blake & Bull and the rest is history. She draws our stuff, provides cuddles for the office dog, and is here to chat to you lovely lot.
