Alfie the bearded collie needed a bandana and so Waggy Campers handmade him a custom bandana, we even made him two.
The first bandana is a plain cotton purple bandana, his campaign colour (more about that later), the second is a reversible plain red on one side and black and white striped on the other. Both bandanas have Alfie hand painted on them.
Quotes from Alfie on his new bandana:
'yay i loves it ive been running round showing off since it arrived : )'
'Yay i got my own trendy bandana from
@waggycampers & i love it. Thank you Samantha'
'i think every doggy should get one they are brill,'
On a more serious note Alfie and his mum run a campaign and e-petiton to increase sentencing and fines for the perpetrators of animal abuse. Currently the maximum is a £20,000 fine and/or 6 months in prison. Cody was set alight in August 2012 and died days later from her injuries. More recently Issac the staffie was brutally attacked and then burnt to death, he could only be identified by his microchip. Alfie would like to see zero tolerance on crimes like this.
