Harry The Pug - new design

This is Harry, a pug of indeterminate age who lives in the village and yet another drinking buddy of Skozi the Greyhound. He likes to sit in his dad's van and travel the Cornish country roads. He's also partial to lamb's hearts (another convert) and breaking wind (according to his dad who has to share the van with him).
So far I have finished the design but yet to print him. Watch the website and my Etsy site to see him in all his (little) glory soon.

New design - Arnie the English Bull Mastiff

 My latest design, just completed. Meet Arnie the English Bull Mastiff. He was a commission for one of my fellow villagers. So far he has appeared on an apron - now I'll start producing some cushions. I'll also be up loading him to the website and Etsy site soon.

The Greyhound Sanctuary

One of the lucky greyhounds rehomed by The Greyhound Sanctuary

This small Devon-based charity needs your help. They are struggling with finding funds to continue the good work they do in rehoming retired racers (and, sadly, rescuing abused dogs). They are organising a series of on-line auctions so please donate something that can be used to raise money or better still make a bid for a gorgeous Christmas gift!
Read more about them here http://thegreyhoundsanctuary.org/ or find them on Facebook here

Will these Greyhound Mugs Race Off the Shelves?

If you love greyhounds, you'll love these fine bone china mugs, made in the Staffordshire Potteries, featuring Skozi the Greyhound in a black design on a white background. They are the latest addition to my range joining Coco the Cat and Donkey.

Great gift idea for greyhound lovers
Is this what you call a mug shot?

Skozi, known as Pooh to his friends (short for Pooh-Bah, after the Mikado character) is a 6 six year old retired racer. He was a Poole Stadium dog, rehomed by the Dorset RGT three years ago and he's ruled my life ever since. He still enjoys a good run on the beach or open field but is a complete couch potato at all other times.

Perfect for making a dog's dinner
Great for making a right dog's dinner

The mugs are an addition to Skozi the Greyhound cushions, aprons and tea towels. Click here to see more

Rosie the Border Collie - new addition to The Gang

Rosie is one of Skozi the Greyhound's (many) girlfriends. She is a lovely border collie (which are also known as sheepdogs) and she lives on the same country estate in East Devon with Laura and Ellen. She is very distinctive with a half white, half black face rather than the usual black face with a white blaze. Stones are her thing - chasing, chewing, herding .....
She will feature on cushions, aprons and tea towels and will be in the on-line shop soon!

Hard day at the office

It's very hard being a male model. Posing for those cushion covers and aprons really takes it out of you. Just have to chill in my Ma's workshop ....

See me in all my glory at http://www.tomatocatshop.co.uk/products/cat_628389-Greyhound.html
