At World Wide Walkies, we seem to have achieved at least a couple of our fifteen minutes of fame…

This month, World Wide Walkies “From Calais to Slovenia on a Pawsome Adventure” – featuring The Fab Four – appeared in the Eurotunnel Le Shuttle newsletter. (Click on the link or click here to go to the original article.)

I have told the Pawsome Foursome not to let fame go to their heads. They said that they won’t let it change them and will still freely give Pawtographs – particularly to anyone who happens to be wearing white trousers…!
