Dog and his bone

I love dogs, I think they really have a positive impact on people's lives.
When it's said man's or woman's best friend, it is so true.
I have a dog, he is a boxer and his name is Jasper. Before I had my kids he was my kid, my fur child, my world. We walked together every day, I accept he isn't very good on a lead, or with other dogs, a bit rowdy, and sometimes quite silly. He is at the older end of his life now, and unfortunately I don't get to spend as much one on one time with him anymore.
Daily I feel guilty about it, his big sad eyes look at me.

What I am getting at, he still follows me, sits beside me, hovers around me at meal time, and accepts that he isn't number one anymore, but is faithful and will always be there.
He is still my best friend no matter what.

My newest design is not of a boxer, not even Jasper, but is inspired by his playful and silly nature. Simple pleasures of a dog and his bone.

I couldn't agree more about the power of having a dog in your life, they become a part of the family and I'm sure Jasper is thrilled in inspired your new range!
