Round Up of 2023 – What an amazing year

Dec 24, 2023 | Uncategorized

As 2023 comes to an end I’ve managed to find 5 minutes to reflect on the crazy manic year I have had! I don’t  feel like my feet have hit the ground since the 1st January literally until today. It’s been exhausting at times but I have experienced amazing things and have memories that will last forever.

The Hector Company has ticked also nicely with steady orders, new products and lots of new followers. The Scottie Dog Club has gained over 400 new members and become a great hub of activity. The Scottie Dog trail in Fife stole the spotlight of the year, it became the talk of The Scottie Dog Club bringing members together sharing their photos, some actually physically meeting up for the first time and a couple of members actually bidding on the statues and winning them! It was a fantastic journey for the community.

New dog shows such as ‘Paws In The Park’ was attended gaining new customers and spreading our name out into the doggy world, our new line of hoodies being a massive hit. Unfortunately ‘Dogfest’ was cancelled due to the heat in September but all the small businesses clubbed together and did a successful campaign on Instagram to fulfil customer orders so they didn’t miss out. November and December saw Christmas markets at Redbourne and the stunning Stowe House.

Personally I’ve been ‘Roadie’ for our daughter and travelled the length and breadth of the country several times this year attending gigs and festivals  ( still not convinced about the camping bit!) every month and painter decorator for our son who bought his first home.

The Hector Co continues to tick along and I wish to sincerely thank each and every one of you for your continued support and custom this year. As we enter our 4th year next March it does seem a little surreal that a small painting of a rainbow Scottie Dog started something  that has become a community in the massive world of dogs.

So looking to Spring 2024 things are going to change a little. There are going to be some exciting announcements and changes to the Scottie Dog Club that will make it more interesting, fun and will be the place that every dog owner will want to be! New products and new designs will be added to the website throughout the year and we will continue to do our best to bring you fun and happiness through our social media posts, make sure you are following us on Facebook & Instagram so you don’t miss out.

Meanwhile I have lots of research, learning and creativity to do so I’m going to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and see you in 2024 and get back to the drawing board.

Love you all

Theresa & Reggie (the boss)
