The Good girls collection has been named after all my dogs past and present. They all mean and have meant so much to me it was about time I named a collection after them. All my dogs have been mini wired haired dachshunds and they are all real little characters.
Poppy was my first dog and I bought her for my 40th Birthday, my two boys were only little when she arrived so it was sad to say Goodbye to her at the grand old age of 15, Poppy definitely had legend status in our family.
Lulu was Poppy’s daughter and we only had her for a short time because she had a bad back which was very disabling. She was the most friendliest of dogs and she always had a very waggy tail and was so pleased to see you.
Rosie is the fattest of all my dogs and we called her Rotunda because she is on the large side. She is permanently on a diet and she will be famous for eating my sweet little green parrot I had been given as a Christmas present. The parrot was called Kiki and only lasted a month, Rosie had been biding her time and I had left the kitchen for half an hour and came back to find a pile of tail features and green feathers coming out of her mouth, she was very unpopular because we loved Kiki so much.
Betty is mad on playing with her toy sausages and she loves pulling and growling at the same time. She has become an instagram hit with her sausages and I get asked so many times to show Betty with her sausages! once we were sent some sausages in the post by an anonymous admirer, Betty was delighted because it meant she had more sausages to play with.
I have to say that all my dogs are my fur babies and I can’t help but talk to them in a funny voice. I think it must stem back to when I used to play with my dolls when I was little. My husband said he never had a dog voice until he met me, now he has a full on dog voice and I am sure if people overheard him they would think he was a bit nutty! my children have both inherited the dog voice so it’s all a bit mad in our house. I am sure there are lots of people reading this who have a secret dog voice!
I hope you enjoy this collection and find it really versatile for interior design projects, I loved designing it!
