We’ve seen Arnie– a stylish little Mini Schnauzer, often tricked out in smart accessories and dog clothes – trotting about Hampstead for a while now. Both he and Teddy clamour to get close to each other, and then enjoy an intricate face-off when they’re nose to nose.
Of all the Hampstead Schnauzers (Teddy, Arnie, Toby, Max, Humphrey, Clemmie – and counting), Arnie has always been most easy to recognise from afar: he sports a vintage-look golden bow tie.
We saw him recently though, and discovered that he’s moved on from bow ties to football scarves. His human has set up an online store Arnie’s Petshop selling dog accessories, specializing in football-scarves-for-dogs.
Very kindly, Ted was presented with one, so now he can proudly display his allegiance to this urban dog’s favourite, Chelsea FC. Fingers crossed that this small hairy hooligan doesn’t disgrace the team.
