pub dog

.
Although I have very much been a cat person all my life, lately me and Nao have been dreaming of having our very own mutt. How lovely to have a little hairy beast scampering about, sniffing out treasures in the market. But, alas, Plimsoll is not too keen on other furries, and runs a mile if she get whiff of one.

Also, you do have to pick up their poo, which is hard to get my head around, but suppose you get used to it!
Our own dog will have to wait until we have a big enough house for Plimsoll + pooch to live in harmony. Until then we have bonded with a our local pub dog, who, until the other day just ignored us. We were at the pub 'working' when she came up and sat on my lap, usually it is too busy looking for chips that fell under chairs. This is exactly the kind of dog we would have, small, scruffy and a bit cheeky maybe {Oi, i know what you are thinking!}.

Here she is helping me to design our next collection.

and in return, I give her a new hair style {or earstyle}.

nahhhhh, pub dog love.
p.s. I'm keeping pub dog {and pub} nameless to protect their identity.

  1. He's a nice dog, that's how I like them a little mutley, with wiry hair! Though mustn't let my cats hear me say that.

  3. Your local pub looks absolutely wonderful. Are those booths as comfortable as they look?

  5. Nice place to 'work'... your chair looks more like somewhere I could quite easily curl up on and have a little kip!

  7. I love pub dogs! Dogs aren't allowed in pubs here in Canada and it's so unfair! It's so nice having animals around - I wish our laws weren't so silly and strict.

  8. The droopy look on her face on the first picture almost makes me cry...I'd even pick up her poo if I'd have to ;-)

  9. Aww, my parents have got a border terrier, the same breed as him and he's lovely, they're so full of character!

  10. I am a cat lover too, but lately have been falling for dogs, if I only had the time...I am at craft central, and there is a dog called Betty that belongs to 1 of the studio's owners, and she is so suit, well a bit gassy, she is so naughty, comes along does her gas and run away, and when people come along the corridor to my stand may think it has been me hilarious really, but I don't mind. Are you guys opening the studio for the event?

  11. Cute! I like the idea of a pub dog... one you can just borrow for a bit and then give back. I'm more cat person too but I do miss going out for walks and chucking sticks etc... cats aren't so fond of that ;)

  12. a border terrier!

    i'm currently sitting on the sofa with my parents' border and can vouch that they are fantastic dogs. quite independent (like cats) but still very much person-orientated. ohh and relatively allergy friendly due to the wirey coats.

    they also double for hot water bottles.

    This pub used to be one of my locals too. That pub is lovely, but have you tried the one just up the road from it (further up the leafy side road that your local is on)? Its even better - though i'd better not give out names if you want to protect their identities!

    Ha, I know that pub, because it is around the corner from me. Used to go in there a fair bit when they first opened, but haven't been in for over a year. I love that English pubs are so dog friendly. Now that you have Pehr, you will have to go in to the rug rats area! Just started reading your blog, found it when I googled Saffron Walden and one of your posts came up.
