Mr Biggles has a pretty amazing story. He was rehomed by Mike after a change in his previous owners work. Mike runs Animal Crackers pet shop in Petersfield and he took on the mamoth job of retraining Biggles as a 10 month old puppy who was already used to misbehaving.
I can only guess that Mr Biggles was frustrated and needed direction, because if you ever have the pleasure to meet him, you will see he is an incredibly well behaved, super happy dog! I was gobsmacked watching him do dummy retrival and his wait command is rock solid. He is so much part of the family now, that he is on the Animal Crackers logo!
I think he is a worthy winner of the Life in Petersfield 'best dog' competition. We started the shoot on the stunning Harting Down, West Sussex which was perfect as you can spot Mr Biggles' village in the distance in the first shots. He was a superstar model, giving me some very cute head tilts and action shots. We then popped to his local pond where he showed off, leaping fearlessly into the water.
Mr Biggles also has the very important job of being top Shop Dog so if you are ever in Petersfield, pop in to say hi and make a fuss of this gorgeous boy.
