Empress Mathilda is one cool, calm and collected sausage we have to say. Mathilda showed us round her dog-friendly Fulham hotspots on a rainy Saturday (Mathilda doesn’t do rain by the way so enlisted the help of her human Katie to drive her around) and seemed equally at home at the local pub as at the hidden brunch bar she took us to.

So let’s get to know the Empress herself and where Mathilda took us on her dog-friendly Fulham tour…

What’s your favourite London Park and why?

Bishops Park, there’s plenty of squirrel chasing, sunbather interrupting and butt sniffing to be done and Mum also likes to look out at the Thames whizzing past.

Tell us a bit about yourself?

Born in the countryside and raised in the city, I am an empress who is easily unimpressed when standards slip. I am a multifaceted pooch – member of the lowrider fox poo rolling gang and office dog extraordinaire at Waggel taking on the role of chief cuddle officer and distractor. On the weekends I like nothing more than a trot about town with my fellow gals followed by a tipple next to a cosy fire complete with mandatory snuggles.
