Doggie Bandana - Get yours at Art of Your Success

We are delighted to offer our new Limited edition dog bandana’s as a tribute to Mr Mole. All proceeds will go to Pointer Rescue Serbia, a fantastic charity close to Holly's heart. Dogs are rescued from very difficult situations in Serbia with the aim of finding them suitable homes in the UK. Please take a look at their website as they have some lovely dogs in desperate need of your help and with huge monthly vets bills every penny counts.

It's one size, one colour. £10 each 

Timing: 3 weeks/shows to order. Orders are open until 23 August. They will then be made and sent out in early September. Limited edition. Only those ordered will be made.
