      Oh Barbarella – it’s fab! We got all our dogs’ beds from there… and a few other bits. They do deliver to Lanzarote, as that’s where we first used them. There is a little to pay on tax when it gets delivered too. But the customer service is bang on. Poor Post Lady coudn’t come ner the place afterwards though as the dogs always thought she was bringing treats (Tiendanimal shoving the free doggie treats in every package!)
