So, for my first ever blog, I thought I would combine something I do on a daily basis (other than talk about Harry Potter!) with my all-time favourite book/movie franchise.

Everyone loves puppies…or at least I’m yet to meet someone who doesn’t have a bit of a ‘soft spot’ for them. Soft and cuddly, they bring a smile to the face of almost everyone. Even when having a bad day, a puppy picture here or a puppy video there will sort you out! B2C.
