You Don’t Know What We Did Last Summer! So Here’s the Full Report 😂


In July 2020 we had the privilege to host Sharo Fest - a Bulgarian charity dog awareness event. We were overwhelmed by the positive response received from everyone involved and the way the whole festival rolled out! We made friends and portraits with 27 dogs over the course of 2 days, gathered enough donations to secure the food of a local dog rescue for a month and connected with hundreds of genuine human beings! On top of this, one of the regional TV channels made a 13 minute report for the festival, which was broadcasted every day for a month, making sure all potential sponsors hear about us and now the acorn has grown into a tree – Sharo Fest 2021 will be a nation-wide treat catching event, raising awareness and funds for abandoned and mistreated dogs (which is a HUGE topic in Bulgaria – for this we will soon have a separate post on our website, as it is not something that can be explained in brief).


And this is how it all happened:

#maskup, board a plane, then

call up the gang and start designing the poster!


Our Special THANKS goes to:


Stanislava & Mario for agreeing Mecho 🇧🇬 the Gentle Bulgarian Giant to become the face of our cause

 Sean & Netty for giving us their consent to feature Barrie on the main poster

Maica for agreeing to have one of her handsome triplets Pablo, shine for us

and last but not least: Lora and Vulric for supporting us all the way! 


Our friends at FANATIC.BG took care of the large format vinyl printing & all merchandise for which we're forever grateful:

... and the stickers and charity merchandise followed:

Once some 200 posters, 2000 stickers and 50 t-shirts were made...

... it was time to get started with setting up the venue:

In a galaxy far, far away... Someone had to setup the lights!

Once we had that in place, it was show time!

And out of the blue, we were on TV!

... after which 2 days of sheer havoc followed!!!

The exterior of the venue was set as a mini exhibition:

...and YES, we were proud of it!😁

Our life-long friend and veterinary doctor of the festival Dr. Yadkov:

Dad Philip was the main force behind the charity merchandise:


It was FANTASTIC and we can’t wait to do it again!

... and 2 weeks later guess who paid us a visit? None other but @mecho.the.bear himself!

On his way from London to L.A. - like the STAR he really is!



(this time for real)

Zeus, The Vietnamese Office Administrator

In case you haven't been paying attention – Zeus came to see us!


He is a 4-year-old Alaskan Malamute rescued from Vietnam. Zeus came to our studio with his fellow hoomans Christina and Anthony and between the catches, the naps and play around the studio they told us his story:


"When I found him he was a tiny little pup (vet guesses he was around 6 weeks old). He came home with me because I couldn't leave him there and I knew he deserved a better life. He followed me back to England where he became a full-time office dog (he comes to work with me every day) and a part-time therapy dog.


We volunteer for a local old person home so he can spread some joy. He's a big boy but is secretly a gentle giant and is scared of small dogs, plastic bags blowing in the wind, anything unfamiliar to him. :)”


Zeus defended his reputation of a master treat catcher, hands down!


Don't forget to follow Zeus on his adventures in a country just out of lockdown! He is watching you @london_malamute :)

JUNO - the Husky Goddess!

Juno was introduced to us by her humom and best friend Jeena. A loving husky girl named after the Roman goddess of protection and fertility & Queen of the gods named “Regina” (which is also her mom’s name), she quickly won us over!


Treat catching began in no time & she

waaaas Q U I C K!!!:)


Along the way, Jeena told us Juno’s story, which is fascinating and scary at the same time:


“Juno was found by her dad on a Facebook pet shelter page in South Korea that posted urgent adoption needed. She was due to be euthanized any day since she way overstayed her time. She lived in a small cage in the pound for over 8 months and wasn’t getting adopted. The staff tucked her away since she was so sweet and quiet but her time was up. We went the next day and as soon as we saw her, knew she was going to be our daughter. 


We got lucky!



She’s not the most affectionate dog from her husky-like independent characteristics but LOVES food and playing with balls and toys that are not hers. Juno is a pet therapy doggo and loves helping others. However, she does not like swimming and smiling for the camera but every so often we get lucky with a big bright one”


Juno is in fact a comedian trapped in a dog's body, who goes by the alias @unimpressedhusky (Not a follower yet? Come on, what is this world coming to!) and is also a world-class treat catcher!

Fred and Millie ❤️ The Dynamic Duo


We had the honour to welcome into our studio Seargant Fred and his guiding light and bestie Millie The Labrador (standing ovations!:) Words simply cannot express the chemistry between those two; you really have to see it!


Fred and Millie were accompanied by their best friends Holly and Jason, who told us more about their habits and mischievous ways:


Fred loves to make people happy, whether that means cuddling up by the fire or dressing up for the camera - he will do it all. His long droopy ears, wrinkly face and great sense of smell means he also loves to track and go on trail hunts. When he is not performing for his fans or out on a mission, it won't take you long to find Fred, he has the loudest snore and the loudest howl in all the land.



Millie is a loveable labrador who wants to please people. At 9 years old, she is still super agile and will do anything for a treat. Millie loves to go on long runs in the countryside as her desire for food is just too strong and can tempt her into a whole variety of situations. One year she stole a whole Christmas cake while she thought no one was looking!



Fred is huge on TikTok & Instagram, if you haven’t seen him yet (are you for REAL, YOU DID NOT JUST SAY DAT!!!) go follow him @sergeant_fred_ 


And that's a direct order!:)


MECHO, The Gentle Bulgarian Giant

Mecho was accompanied into our studio by his best friends Stanislava and Mario. We were expecting a large dog, but come on...! His paws were bigger than Stoyo's hands and as it turned out, they were made for huggin' !:) It didn't take long to get Mecho's attention and we started shooting in no time. When the time for a break came, Stanislava and Mario told us his story which we are publishing unabridged:


“Mecho was just a few months old when he was abandoned near a ski resort in Bulgaria. He’s such a gentle giant and quickly won the locals over, they ensured that he was always fed and decided to name him Mecho (meaning “bear” in Bulgarian) due to his resemblance to a bear.



  🐾 Follow Mecho's adventures on his Instagram profile @mecho.the.bear 🐾


Mecho decided to introduce himself to us on the first morning of our ski holiday. He ran over to us while we were getting breakfast, and of course we fed him, and then we played catch with snowballs. We spent the next following days cutting our time on the slopes shorter and shorter so we could spend more time with him. It wasn’t long before we decided that we can’t leave him behind and took him to a local vet for a health check and to prepare his passport and vaccinations for travel to the UK. 



 When he arrived he settled in immediately, and we absolutely love having him, he’s such a little character, incredibly smart and brings so much joy into our lives!"


It was the best decision ever!
