As you may already know from one of my previous blog posts, my Westie Belle also loves things that are made in Britain. We recently visited her favourite pet boutique called Barkitty where Belle spotted a very patriotic Union Jack harness made by Mutts and Hounds. When she tried it on and had lots of attention and compliments from the other customers in the shop, she just had to have it!

Here is Belle trying on the Mutts and Hounds Union Jack harness at Barkitty. I think she has very good taste as it really suits her and also fits perfectly!

A couple of piccies of Belle modeling her new trendy harness before going out for a walk.

The same Mutts and Hounds harness is also available in Tweed.

You can also buy a Mutts and Hounds Union Jack neckerchief.
