Laurel has a sock party

We were lucky enough to visit Laurel again recently … she is a sock loving and rather beautiful fox terrier and belongs to some very dear friend of ours.

Laurel just loves socks so much, she snuffles them around and hides them in all sort of nooks and crannies of her home and then brings them out again when she feels the time is right.

When we last visited her she had been feeling a little under the weather so we decided to throw her a sock party!

Well, we can confirm she was absolutely thrilled and didn’t know quite what to do with herself in sock heaven…

Here are some fabulous photos of all the happiness and socktastic fun Laurel had!

Little Laurel the dog.

One of Juliet’s dearest friends Peter, has just got a new dog…

Laurel is a beautiful fox terrier who seems to be obsessed with socks!

Apparently she has stashes all over the house which she colour co-ordinates and moves around…

They are very special to her. We were so smitten with her we just had to give her a pair of special socks, which of course are now her favorite!

Here is Laurel with one of our new Exmoor Socks, colour matched with her bed, of course.

Enjoy.

And here is the Exmoor Sock Offer for those of you who want to see the other colour options to match with your own bedding!

Over and out.
