Two Cairn Terriers promote a Christmas offer


Hiya and Merry Christmas to you!

If you’ve caught me on air over the last few weeks – you may have heard me mention how two very mischievous Cairn Terriers have taken on the role of TV promotion!

It’s no secret my favourite on air video clip is the short intro we use to take us to a QVC Christmas Offer. It’s brilliant, featuring a small dog pulling on the ribbon of a Christmas present.

Well, how hard can it be? As it happens, with two cheeky Cairns, very hard! We were on a tight time frame, but I’m really pleased with how it turned out.

But, be warned, it was low budget with few props! I hope you like it. I love it!

I wonder if acting dogs qualify for equity!!?

Well, keep watching out for Christmas offers. The home page of our website is the perfect place to regularly visit to check out the latest Today’s Special Value offer, Festive Find, Big Deals, and so much more!

Also, Christmas gifts are covered by our extended money-back guarantee to the 25th January 2020.

I placed a couple of orders over the weekend myself… I can’t say too much in case prying eyes check in on my blog, other than to say one of the purchases was Liz Earle… I’ve said too much!

Happy Christmas Shopping with QVC!!

    Hi Charlie. OMG. Your video is FANTASTIC. We all agree it’s MUCH BETTER than the official QVC one. I know a certain little one would have loved it. Thank you for putting a smile on my face.
    Take care. Debby

    Brilliant! Best thing I’ve seen on ‘TV’ all season. I too have a cairn and she won’t do anything without a biscuit. Well, sometimes she will just take the biscuit literally and metaphorically!!!

    Hey Jackie, Thanks for your lovely comment… aren’t they the most AMAZING breed! Cheeky, stubborn and so, so funny! I adore them!

    Oh Charlie, I laughed and cried. I lost my dear cairn, Jack, 3yrs ago and am always drawn to cairns when I see them. I’m VERY impressed you got them to do ANYTHING as they are their own people (well dogs!), doing what they like! Even sitting on the chairs is miraculous. Very nostalgic and I agree MUCH better than the trained professional pooch! Xx

    So sorry for the loss of your Cairn, Jack. They’re the world to us aren’t they.
    They are the most amazing of breeds. I love them. Cheeky, naughty, stubborn and so loyal! I could go on…
