A dog-friendly coffee shop took its love for pooches to another level when it held a special ‘doggy tea party’.
Willow Boyle, who owns Blondes cafe, hired out a car park at the rear and decked it out with bunting and balloons so the doggies could party in style.
The event in Cottingham, East Yorks., boasted specially-made treats for dogs with all kind of tastes including those who prefer gluten free and dairy free goodies.
Willow said that Blondes is heavily involved with dog rescue centres in Romania after becoming aware of the horrendous treatment that pets can suffer over there.
She said: “We collect blankets and food for dogs and send them across to Romania. We have also worked with a rescue centre over there to bring some of the dogs over here and get them rehomed in Britain.
“It was great because some of those dogs we had brought over here came to the party and we got to see how they had been getting on in their new home.”
Willow described the treats that Blondes created for her special canine guests.
She said: “We made lots of dog treats and cup cakes and we had a dog lucky dip from which the dogs could choose their own treats and we had a dog raffle.
“We made peanut butter cupcakes, peanut butter flapjacks with doggy chocolate on.
“We make the treats to special dog recipes so that they are not made to feel unwell.”
“We also had a few leftover treats and we gave them to a local rescue centre which they loved and was great to see.
“All round it was a fantastic event and we can’t wait to do another one. We raised £600 which is brilliant.”
