This is how we started 2020, full of life and excitement for the year ahead but like all of us, 2020 has so far proved to be a very different year. Temporarily closing down to Covid-19 was an incredibly hard decision to make, however it was absolutely the right decision to protect all our families and yours. Thankfully your support has been amazing and we’re delighted to be back up and running again.
2020, so far, has been full of highs and lows. The lows are for obvious reasons with the virus but today we are focusing on the amazing highs…
Firstly, we celebrated three wonderful years in business in March. Over that time we’ve looked after and met some amazing people and their fur babies. We’ve loved every minute, even the days of rain and mud ….lol, well, sort of! We’ve learnt so much and continue to do so, and welcome any ideas you might have on how to improve or take our business forward.
2020 also was a big year for me, Kirsty, as I welcomed my baby daughter to the world and, maybe the dog walking team, one day! Mya was born in the second week of lockdown, during a world wide pandemic. It was a scary time but we made it through and we are very much enjoying time off with her. I hope to be back working in a few months. In the meantime, Annie is being an absolute star, holding the fort and looking after all your fur babies.
Your support during this pandemic has been amazing and we can’t thank you enough. We know not all of you are back to work yet or your working lives have changed and that’s absolutely fine, we are here in the wings when you are ready for your dogs to be walked again. Our business has always been strong and will continue to be.
Like most businesses, we’ve had to take new precautions when visiting homes and collecting dogs but it’s just part of life now and that’s ok!
Pet Popins will be available too and when we are eventually allowed to travel, whether that’s here in the UK or abroad. We will of course take full precautions when visiting homes for your safety, that of your pets and our families.
During lockdown we tried to keep you up to date as best we could and we posted lots of great pictures and videos – thank you to everyone that sent stuff in. It was great to see. We also ran our first competition and we were delighted with the response – well done to Maisy for winning. Her prize will be sent over as soon as possible.
We have lots of exciting plans coming up and new ideas and we can’t wait to share them with you so keep your eyes open.
It’s great to see you all again and we’re very much looking forward to the year ahead.
Love, Kirsty & Annie xxx
