Santa has departed Hachi and is now busily climbing up and down chimneys throughout the rest of Melbourne, bringing joy to countless children and, no doubt, quite a few more dogs. Santa’s visits to Hachi resulted in many wagging tails and smiling faces, and loads of cherished photos. We want to thank all our customers who brought their dogs to Santa today and last Saturday, and who contributed to make this such a fun event on each occasion. We really feel blessed to have such a wonderful group of active, dog-loving customers, and so many well-trained, well-behaved dogs visiting our store. Please note, the shop will be closed on 25th and 26th December, and 1st and 2nd January. In the meantime we are actively planning more events for 2017, both of the more serious educational type, and the pure fun type. Our other very exciting news is that Hachi’s in-store grooming service will commence at the end of January, so keep posted, more news about that soon. Our warmest wishes for a happy and safe Christmas and New Year, and may 2017 be a very good year for you all.
