After The Holiday

Ted and Chimp are back to their usual happy selves after pining for John ( the portrait artist ) whilst he and Julia had a well earned holiday on the beautiful Isle of Skye.

They did a pretty good job of clearing up after the party’s too, don’t think anyone noticed guys 😉

We had a photoshoot in the studio with a lovely lady by the name of Carole on Tuesday. Read more about her charity here pawsforkids
