Belle & Mimi
Golden Doodles, therapy dogs, friendliest staff members
Belle & Mimi are beautiful, bouncy, fluffy therapy dogs that absolutely adore people. They are the true heart of the studio and encourage visitors to feel better about their day just by her company and warm-hearted affection. There long fluffy tails sometimes gets them into trouble with lower lying objects but thankfully there true love is food, so the pottery is safe for now. If at first, they are out of sight, it is probably because they are having a nap or on occasion, a day off.
