Dogs that look like their owners a LOT!

Now it’s a well known fact that dogs tend to look like their owners… or the other way around – but when I came across this video I just couldn’t believe my eyes! It got me thinking – is the saying “opposites attract” even remotely true?  If dogs choose people that look so obviously just like them surely this age old saying needs re-writing? It also made...

Merry Christmas Mr President!

I was absolutely gob smacked today when I read about the incredible creativity of the White House florist, Laura Dowling who fashioned an amazing likeness of my dear friend Bo Obama out of… wait for it… PIPE CLEANERS!  40,000 pipe cleaners in fact… which took 500 hours of constant twisting to produce a “faux Bo” worthy of greeting the first families guests for the festive...

Does your dog need to chill out?

For all those nay sayers out there that think that dogs are not the most fun loving and easy going fellows… watch this video! This chap frankly puts some of his human friends to shame here… but look at how completely relaxed he is.  In his element isn’t he!  So if your dog is in need of a little R&R – perhaps get him a skateboard with his Dickybag this Christmas? I’m...

Christmas can be dangerous for Dogs!

Ah… here we are – Christmas week!  Everywhere I look you humans seem to be scurrying to and fro making the final preparations for the festivities to come this weekend – holly hangs everywhere, the houses are all looking very jolly with their inflatable Santas and brightly lit ornaments and you all look very excited.  Very sweet. However, at the risk of sounding like a complete...

Who let the dogs out?

I’m told I have several rather unusual habits… wearing a crown for example and speaking in the rather regal tone of bark in which I do… oh and picking up after myself in order to use my beloved Dickybag. However I could hardly believe my eyes when a Dickybag customer sent in this video of Canine Conundrums!  What on earth are these fellows thinking? Does your dog have any hilarious...

E=MC…. Squirrel?

“Clever boy!” is actually my middle name, my human says it all the time so it must be true. I am much brighter than a cat (obviously) although our neighbours seem to love theirs despite their lower intelligence and loyalty scores!  Cats… yuck… they make you shudder just thinking about them don’t they?  They are all so lazy…and just entirely unpleasant to look at. Anyway,...

You can now get the XS and Small Dicky Bags from our online shop.  Some lucky people who met us at Discover Dogs and the Christmas Gift Fair at the NEC in November got first dibs on our new sizes, the only problem being they were so popular we immediately ran out and the arrival of our new stock has been somewhat delayed by the weather; ...

Fit as a butchers dog!

Good day fellow cat herders! Dicky here! Today I had to explain to my human that it was perfectly acceptable and quite normal for me to want another walk, nay another two walks per day!  My reasoning behind this?  I’m a dog- it’s what I do, I’m a roamer… ever watch the littlest hobo? Ah now there’s a fellow with the right idea – all he does is walk…and...
