An early start for Dad as he set of at 4:30 am to travel down to Plympton near Plymouth, it was a 235 mile trip to Devon from our home here in Kent to meet our latest stockist Samantha Hunt from Redpaw Pet Supplies. It was a beautiful morning although a little cold but with one of my Dooley's Fleeces on Dad was toasty warm.
As he got to the great megalithic monument of Stonehenge the sun was rising and the stones look amazing. (Dad always says it will be nice when its finished and the windows and roof is on) oh Dad please.........
Dad's first port of call on his trip was to call in at JWJ Joinery Chardstock, Devons leading bespoke joiners. He got there at 7:30am and was greeted by Dorothy, John's wife. Dad had ordered a bespoke counter top display stand. After a mug of Tea and a bacon sandwich made by Dorothy (I'm not sure every customer gets this with each bespoked order, though it was a nice bonus and very welcome) Dad set off to journey across Devon to Plympton.
He arrived at 11am and was greeted by Samantha and her team who were having a Coffee Morning in aid of St Lukes Hospice. We donated one of London Soap's Gift Boxes.
After a good few hours of chatting with Samatha and her customers about my products, (it was also so nice to get all the positive feed-back on my Shampoo and to see so many of Redpaw customers' pets all having been washed with it, and looking so clean and a beautiful shine on their coats).
It was also great to hear that they had been trying out my other products in the range too, and were discovering so many other uses for them around the home and work-place. One customer was telling us she had added a little of the Univeral Cleaner to her steam cleaner and was amazed by the results. She also told us she had tried the same with the Apple Disinfectant and said it not only cleaned and sanitized but left a lovely fresh smell too.
While dad was there he said my products were flying off the shelves, selling like hot cakes, which is just how Samantha's coffee morning was going too. Samantha told us that they raised £93.00 for St Lukes Plymouth. So a big well done to everyone at Redpaw for such a great effort in aid of a super hospice.
It was finally time for Dad to set off home after a great day with Samantha and the gang not forgetting "Baloo" Redpaw chief product tester.
So with the sun still high in the sky Dad set off back on the 235 mile return trip to me and mum to tell us all about his day, both Mum and me were very happy to see Dad home again after his very long day. But not a Pasty in sight!!!!!!! but I liked the part about Baloo showing Dad what tricks he could do, I don't do any tricks "But then again I'm am CEO of my own company" Dooley's Pet Care Range
Its so tiring listening to Dad time for a snooze.......
Oh wait! Dad said he was getting takeaway Pizza. Yummy. I will wake up when that gets here. WOF
