Have you heard the exciting news? Maximus is now an ambassador for Guru Pet Food! It has been so hard to keep it a secret but now I can finally announce that he is their official ADVENTURE GeekSTAR!
We are so excited to work with Guru. I love how much they care about the quality of their food, ensuring each pellet is packed with nutrition. Lets not forget about how much Maximus loves it either… if you watch our Instagram stories you will have seen the ‘Guru drool’.
We are so excited to work with them for this next year and join them at the Guru stand at some upcoming shows including Dog Fest 2017!
Here’s our exclusive interview with Geekster Sam:
Welcome Charlotte and Maximus to #TeamGuru tell us a little about yourselves.
Thank you! I am so excited to join the team. I’m Charlotte, I’m 16 and have a huge passion for photography. Maximus is our soon to be 1 year old Sprocker Spaniel, he is the main focus of my photography. I have a twin sister called Neve who regularly helps behind the scenes. We love going on new adventures around the British countryside, there are so many different places to explore.
I am currently studying for my A-levels. After this I would love to get into blogging and animal care as a hopefully permanent job, with a side hobby of photography of course!
I’ve really enjoyed sharing Maximus’ adventures on Instagram, its such a lovely community. I have always struggled to make friends at school so it’s been so nice to interact with people online that share a love for dogs like me.
Who inspired you to start blogging?
I’ve always loved writing, so when I found out that ‘blogging’ was a thing I was keen to start one, but I didn’t have a focus that would inspire me enough. My mum would often suggest starting a blog and basing it on myself but it just wasn’t what I wanted. When Maximus came along I knew he would be the perfect focus to base a blog on because it was putting together two things I loved, dogs and writing… it was perfect.
Did you have any help or did you create the blog yourself?
My blog took a lot of time to get right, at first I found aspects like designing it quite confusing but I eventually got the hang of it, I did it myself which makes getting it perfect even more satisfying. I can’t even tell you how many designs I’ve tried out… I was very picky with what i wanted. I wanted the design and colours to match the name Max goes by: ‘Dapper Maximus’. Imagine if his design was all floral and pink, it wouldn’t work!
What do you find most challenging about blogging?
Balancing blogging with school can be quite challenging because I have to work out the correct balance to fit them both in without feeling guilty that I haven’t put enough effort into one of them. It can be stressful at times but it’s definitely worth it.
What’s your favourite blog you’ve done and why?
It’s hard to pick a favourite blog, I enjoy writing all the blogs I do and I don’t post my blog until I’m completely happy with the turn out. I do really love writing about trips we’ve been on like my blog post about Weston-Super-Mare because it brings back the memories and I love to share it with the readers of my blog and give them ideas of places to visit, dog friendly of course.
Finally, if you could have lunch with anyone, who would it be and why?
That’s a tricky one! I’ve thought about it a lot and have decided on a celebrity I’ve loved since my childhood: Cole Sprouse. You may know him from the Disney Channel TV show: Suite Life of Zack and Cody. I used to love the show when I was younger, especially because I have a twin too. He also stars in my current favourite TV show: Riverdale, a programme based on ‘Archie Comics’, as a character called Jughead Jones. As he’s got older he has found a passion for photography and writing which I have found really inspiring. He has such an artistic eye and he’s so expressive and poetic with his words. He brings a simple photo to life, it’s such a skill, one I admire.
Thank you Guru for inviting us to to join the team as an ambassador, we are looking forward to the next year to come!
