Pampered pooch Mr Hendrix spreads Christmas cheer

How does the other half spend their Christmas? Hendrix is here to shine light on how a celebrity dog celebrates it in style!

Everyone loves Christmas time but not everyone loves it quite as much as Mr Hendrix, the star of the incredible success story of 2014. With four books published in less than 18 months and a string of personal appearances at 2014 literary and music festivals, plus charity events such as Guide Dogs’ Dogs Unite! and a stint on the catwalk modelling Urban Pup designs, Hendrix is ready to put his paws up after a very busy year.

Whether he’s dressing up in one of his many (many, many) special Christmas outfits, rifling through all his Christmas presents or planning his spectacular New Year’s Eve parties Hendrix throws himself into all holiday activities with gusto!

It all starts with a long lie in with his red-nosed buddy. After that is a long morning unwrapping gifts and rolling in wrapping paper before the first outfit change of the day, something red to go with his favourite Santa’s hat.

Now, no one likes being pampered more than Hendrix, whether it’s getting a ‘peticure’, having his coat combed or just lazing around and being cuddled in front of the fire by his owner Anji Graham, singer, songwriter and co-author of the pre-school picture book series – Mr Hendrix & Friends…

After a morning of petting and pampering it’s time for lunch and Hendrix enjoys simply the best – just like we all do on the big day. All of his favourite foods are piled high ready to be scoffed down at record speed.

After lunch there’s just enough time to catch the Queen’s Speech, have a quick nap and a quick pre-shoot preening before it’s time for Hendrix’s favourite thing: the family photo.

Hendrix is the star of four children’s books including ‘Mr Hendrix & The Half-Eaten Mincepie’, written by his best friends, mother and daughter duo, Jennifer Thwaite and Anji Graham who love getting into the Christmas spirit almost as much as Hendrix.

When she’s not writing stories about the brilliant Hendrix Anji Graham is a singer/songwriter who has worked with huge British bands including Take That and Elbow. She also travels to LA regularly to work with film directors and producers on music for films.
