SHE captured the hearts of Ayrshire dog lovers when she was just a pup and even became the star of her very own children’s book.

And when it’s her birthday, Lola, or Princess Lola as her owner Tracy Breen and her fans call her, hosts a doggy party where over 100 of her four-legged friends meet up to share a doggy-friendly cupcake.

She even has her own YouTube channel where fans can watch her beach party in full swing and the Ayrshire Film Company regularly follows Lola on her daily adventures.

Her Instagram and Facebook pages are busy with dog lovers sharing snaps of their own pups while following her daily life around the day care centre, dog grooming parlour and of course, her beloved walks along the beaches of Ayrshire.

And while lockdown has halted her birthday bash this year, there were cupcakes for her pals at owner Tracy’s Lola’s Doggy Day Care in Pennyburn.

During this afternoon party, more than 22 dogs shared cupcakes, ran about and enjoyed the sunshine at the base at Kilwinning Sports Club.

The day care service is now full with over 60 dogs spending time there each week and Tracy has plans to open a second day care service to cope with demand.

A far cry for this former Glasgow City Council worker who was inspired after she was unhappy with the day care service she had used for Lola.

She decided to follow her own dream and set up her own day care service for dogs in May 2019, a decision she wishes she had done years ago.

“I loved my job at the council,” said Tracy.

“But I had always wanted to work with dogs and when Lola came along and after I moved her out of day care I decided to go for it.

“It’s been a quick two years and I have to say it doesn’t feel like work at all, all the dogs are great and I have a brilliant team who are devoted to caring for them every day.

“It means a lot that the owners put their trust in us.”

Now, Tracy is planning a second book of Princess Lola’s adventures.

“I can’t believe how popular the book was, I was delighted and it will be great to get a second one out there and hopefully a second day care centre too.”
