Meet Boris, our first shop dog

Boris the shop dog at Cards n Things

When Greetings Today spoke to Paul and Helen Southgate, owners of a Norwich card shop, we were introduced to the lovely Boris. He was such a star, that we thought he deserved some recognition. So as it’s National Pet Month, we find out more about Boris.

Name: Boris Southgate

Favourite thing about being the ’shop’ dog?

Being close to my owners, meeting lots of other dog friends in the shop and being a social media icon!

Usually in the back office where it is nice and warm and I have my tennis balls to play with.

Pupsicle ice cream from local company Danns, which we sell in the shop.
