Teddy

Teddy

General Dogsboddy

Milners of Leyburn Site Dash

eddy is as much a part of the Milners team as anyone else, if you don’t see him you will certainly hear him, but you are more likely to see him as he is always creeping down the stairs from the top floor to say “Hello”. 

Milners of Leyburn Site Dash

He is also a brilliant doorbell - whilst we were closed during the lockdowns he would alert us to deliveries and customers coming to collect items.  When he is not at the shop he loves nothing more than chasing a ball, he also loves playing with his little brother from another mother – Timmy (Leonie’s lockdown adopted kitten).
