I don't really have a collection exactly, just over the years I keep finding them... sort of like strays.
None of them have much value, but they make me smile when I see them.
This is the oldest one. I've had this little boy, with his little brown dog, since I was a child. He's very top heavy and poor thing fell over and his head popped off. I was in my teens when I made the repair. Musta been goood glue for it to stay on this long.
For some reason, I have a thing for terriers. I won these two on Ebay.
This one reminds me a wire fox terrier we got when we were first married. He came with the name of "Bingo Von Breitenfeld", but we called him "Bingie".
I found this at an antique mall years ago. It's made of metal and very heavy. I guess it's supposed to be an ash tray, but I use it for paper clips.
These two little terriers are metal, also. I've had them so long I don't remember where I got them.
The bird dog with a pheasant is from a flea/tique shop.
This is my favorite, a little Staffordshire. I found it at a really "low end" thrift store for $2. You never know where treasures will turn up!
This little black and white spaniel is a reproduction, of course.
I love this picture with the two puppies. We found it several years ago at a furniture store that was going out of business.
Just Good Friends, by Lucy Dawson (aka Mac).
Lucy Dawson (1877-1958)
British born Lucy Dawson (aka Mac) is known for her paintings and etchings of
dogs. There is very little about her on line, but you can see a little more about her, here.
Do any of you have dogs that have followed you home?
Hope y'all have a great week.
