Max, our chocolate Labrador! Max spends more of his time around the garden centre shops, escorting visitors and ensuring that any dog biscuits dropped are soon cleaned up. He also enjoys a good run around now and then which is most entertaining if you happen to catch him in a mad half hour.
Although he can sometimes be rather vocal, with what sounds like a mean dog bark, if you look closely he’s most likely wagging his tail. We think he just gets a little over excited, and its his way of saying “HELLO! HOW ARE YOU TODAY?!”
