In 2016 did John Lewis & Partners in the UK released this ad for Christmas with BusterTheBoxer!

Even if I’m not a fan of Christmas, I love the card writing … all the lights … and great Christmas adverts! This is one of the best.

I dedicate this post to my blogging sister Ann Christine@LEYA, for the fantastic year we had this year – great dates and the trip to Szczecin together with her husband Lars. Looking forward to our 2020 adventures!

Thank you for 2019, A-C!

Buster is actually called Biff, lives in Bedfordshire with two other Boxers, Betty and Darcy, is five years old and has lived with his family since he was eight weeks old.

Biff wasn’t looking for work and has actually never even appeared in a film.

But he caught the production team’s eye at his training club who were looking for a “very handsome dog” to play the part of Buster in the John Lewis commercial.
He beat 11 other dogs to get the role and spent two weeks with specialist trainers to get ready for filming.
Biff’s key trick was to look up and down as if watching something or someone bounce.

His skills have gone down well with fans.

  1. Love this video, Vivi. It’s super cute 🙂 🙂 I don’t think I’ve watched it before but my memory’s gone walkabout these days. The foxes are my favourites. Merry Istanbul, darlin!

    • Jo, it’s so lovely …. yes, the foxes are brilliant, but I don’t think they are real. I posted it in 2016 – but worth to be re-posted. I will do my best … I promise, not hard to have a great time in Istanbul. Going with my friend Bärbel. Merry Everything, Girlfriend.

  2. ♥♥♥♥♥ My heart is full, Viveka! Thank you! for a wonderful treat and present for this Christmas! Just loved the clip – had never seen it before! just you and Bärbel have a great time in Istanbul now. Merry Christmas and see you in the Happy New Year!

    • My pleasure!!! You are such a darling … and I posted this the first time in 2016 – but the video doesn’t work anymore … so I decided to make a new post. I’m just going to indulge myself in Istanbul, not trying to be the best tourist in town. I wish you and your boys (the 2-legged one too) only Best for 2020.

    • Amy, thank you so much …. it’s hard not to love this video. *smile … The same to you! I wish a Christmas full of joy and warmth for you and your dear ones.

    • Merry Christmas to you and your dear ones!! I can watch this video time after time … so well made and so funny. Love the little hedgehog jumping, I guess it all animated. Who doesn’t love Buster’s face. This years ad … is magical too, about a cute little dragon. I will post it in January.
