There’s something very important about me that I haven’t yet shared with you, dear readers: I’m a dog lover. We have a three-year-old Airedale terrier named Georgia. She’s sweet as pie when she’s not eating the leather strap on my handbag or barking at the pizza delivery man:

As is true with other pet-owners, I’m a sucker for buying stuff that has a dog on it. For example, last summer I saw a letter holder to hang by the front door when I was at the flea market. It’s fairly heinous in every way apart from the etching of a terrier puppy on it. So I bought it, of course. No wonder then that I was so drawn to this:

I found this adorable pillow at the Abacus Furniture Design booth at the recent Spring Cottage Life Show. They have a variety of home furnishings, specializing in solid cherry or curly maple pieces. These pillows are a touch on the pricey side, selling for $95, but they are the kind of special something that would make an amazing gift. For $125 you can even get one with your dog’s name included (there are several breeds available).

Our Airedale,Ian just turned 11 today & he's still as feisty as ever.I still remember picking him up in Winnipeg at the breeder-such a wee thing.Alas he's now a 62lb bundle of energy but just as lovable... Good luck with Georgia,she's a cutie!
