I have a funny little tail about Lowndes the Chihuahua

There we all were, a family barbie with Cousin Deb, Nicholas the wild hairy one, Chloe, Marcus and all the crew (I won’t give you all the names), with a few dogs thrown into the mix. Suddenly there was a whole heap of people and quadrupeds hanging round the barbie table catching up. Always entertaining to watch the personalities mingle. Poppy, my dog, was in her element; a few new dogs around the place and she was busy showing them her patch - to say there was a lot of piddling and bum-sniffing was an understatement.

Of the dogs there was Stanley the Cairn Terrier (to the left there). At only 9 months old, cousin Deb reckoned he wasn’t no Einstein. He kinda proved that point when he tried to assert his diminutive authority over a mob of yearling Ayrshire X Devon cattle - there was a degree of bovine mirth at that. Then we had Betty Boop, the rescue Schnauzer - she was like a little old grandma with purple hair and partial dementia; pretty harmless and a little confused by the whole situation. There was Poppy, my Staffy Lab cross who rules the roost and has been a dog known to like a bit of a rumble in her time, and then da da dum, there was Lowndes!!!! Now, cousin Deb is a V8 fan and has had a Great Dane named Brock, a Murphy, a Skaife and all manner of current and ex V8 driver names for her dogs, but never a Lowndes until now. What a little holy terror; she made a noise like a tin can full of angry bumblebees bouncing down the stairs, snapped like a barracoota and targeted Poppy like a heat-seeking missile. All the other dogs were groovy but Lowndes - but Lowndes - little pocket-rocket Chihuahua, I think she thought she was 10 feet tall as opposed to 10cm. Anyhow, Poppy played nicely; turned her butt demurely and politely declined to engage, and instead gave her attention to Stanley and Betty - interesting how dogs can easily turn the other cheek and pick the dogs they like. All ended well and Lowndes is probably off somewhere now puffing out her little chest, curling up that tail and preparing herself to leap forth into the great wide open and sort out her next victim.

Jimbo's Hypoallergenic

Do you have an itchy, scratchy dog that struggles with skin issues? Dogs with skin problems can benefit from a diet based on hypoallergenic proteins - like our Jimbo's Hypoallergenic. This product contains NO beef or chicken products (two common proteins associated with food allergies) - and it's delicious! (Or so dogs tell us.) As with all of our products it is 100% free of grains.
