A new pet store in Warmley, South Gloucestershire welcomed a special guest when Angel – ‘the First Dog of the West of England’ – performed its official opening. Angel’s owner, West of England Metro Mayor Dan Norris, joined her for the ceremony at Jollyes.
The store wrote to Angel inviting her to do the honours, and received a reply from the clever canine saying she’d be barking mad to miss it! She was rewarded with the chance to ‘bite the ribbon,’ which was made from sausages.
Mr Norris said: “Angel seemed happy to open this brand new re-tail outlet, and the string of sausages was a paw-some treat.
“And she even managed to pose for a photo taken by the pup-arazzi.”
