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.

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!
