Lots of you may have seen our story this afternoon we took Philly to the vet with some suspicious lumps that popped up on his back in the last week. The vet has said that he's 99% sure they are cancer. Most likely mast cell tumours. We are devastated. The vet does think that if we cut them out there's every chance that Philly will be cancer free and totally fine. But we need to wait to send the lumps away so they can tell more about what's in them and the chance of it being through his body. The operation is currently booked for next Monday but we are going to bring it forward because I don't think I can deal with the agony of waiting a week. I feel that Philly is still very happy and not worried at all by the lumps. He's still guzzling down his dinner and pulling his usual food stealing tricks. I am confident he will be ok but it's tough to hear that he may have cancer in his body even after cutting the lumps out. My baby boy is only 5 so surely this isn't it for him. Any way, I just wanted to let you guys know that my little man is going in for a big operation and to say a little wish for him. ❀️
We are working through the day and night lately to get all of your leads and collars, match your dog hoodies and match your dog pjs to you by Christmas, and this won't change. Our @darrenandphillip customers are so incredibly important to us and we are doing absolutely everything we can to make you happy.
But I just want to say that with the pressure of the workload and feeling that my baby is sick I may just need to take a very very small breather from the wonderful land of social media. I've never done this before and I love being here but I have to admit I am feeling like I need it. Next week, on Tuesday, I will be hosting a huge fundraiser on our Facebook page. We are going to try do something super huge for our rescues just before Christmas. So we will still be here trying to organise that but I just may not be posting silly happy pics of the boys for now or replying to as many DM's which I'm very sorry about. If you've ordered anything at all from @darrenandphillip we promise you we will still be doing everything we can to get your order to you by Christmas. ❀️

Well. Mums finally back where she belongs and the world can go on as normal again. They got home and put all our decorations in the bin can u believe it! Dad hasn't tried to drive the car yet .... 😐 let's see if he notices that both wing mirrors have been bashed off.😬 (The drive thru was v v tight ok)
Anyway, we iz v happy to have them home. We really thought that from watching Mums Insta story that we'd have a new brother Cooper to play with when they got home but sadly their suitcase was without doggy brother for us. πŸ˜’

Dis photo was taken by a very special friend of ours, the mum of @the_cheeky_staffys Meaghan, she visited last night and came bearing chocolates for Mum and smooches for us. We really like her. Mum also really likes her. She was laughing at Philly drooling and I didn't let her not be touching me at any given point in the night. #needyboyproblems
Thank you for the wonderful visit @the_cheeky_staffys and thanks for showing up Mums photog skills completely πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈ

SWIPE---> You guessed it folks!!! Our most beautiful addition to @darrenandphillip yet, our leads and collars! 😍😍😍😍 These have been something we have been working on for SO long! Keeping this a secret from you all has been so tough! .
I first drew our lead and collar design long before our clothing brand was released. I had a very clear image in my mind of exactly how I wanted them to look and very little has changed through the entire process of making the sketches into a real product. I'm so proud of that, that even though it's been a long 18 months since my first sketch, my vision has remained exactly the same and the style has not changed one bit. I only love it more and more every time I see it. It's so classic and timeless. 😍 The only change we've made since then was changing the buckle into a clip and making the collar adjustable, and when playing around with colours I loved the red so much more than the green in the original sketch.
Please have a swipe through to see a little into the background of bringing these to life ❀️ It's taken so long between the first sketch over 18 months ago and it's been super interesting trying to source quality products but I'm happy it took so long and that I didn't compromise on what I wanted because we now have a beautiful quality product that I'm so proud of. ❀️❀️❀️ I'm a terrible drawer/graphic designer by the way so excuse the drawings that look like a 5th grader did them!
P.S there is one incredibly special feature that I haven't told you about which we will announce sooner to the release! It's a GAME CHANGER! 😍
@darrenandphillip
I'd love to hear what you think, let me know in the comments if you love them too ❀️❀️❀️
