Basils-cushion.jpg

It’s been a busy few weeks since I last put paw to laptop and what an exciting time it’s been. I am especially thrilled to report that I am the latest ‘cushion star’ for Nikki Szabo’s Mad About Dogs collection – and in not just one but two hand-painted designs! Should you like the look of my squishy face and care to share your home with me, cushions are priced £45 each from Nikki-Szabo.co.uk. The ‘BASIL’ pictured left is me as a puppy, and the ‘BASILEUS’ on the right shows me, as I am now and using my pedigree name.

Breed Focus: Dachshund

Breed-focus-Dachshund.jpg

In this month's Breed Focus we turn our attention to the dashing Dachshund a.k.a. the sausage dog, wiener dog (for our American fans), the Doxie or the Daxie Originating from Germany, they were first bred to scent, chase and flush out badgers and other burrow-dwelling animals, or in the case of the miniature dachshund - to hunt smaller pray such as rabbits. However, in today’s world he has a much easier life kicking back as a family pet but that's not to have they have surrendered their digging instincts – their large and paddle-shaped front paws are often used to dig into a blanket or an enticing patch in the garden.

Mungo-and-Maud-interior-3.jpg

Arriving at Mungo & Maud pet boutique in South West London at the end of a typical journey on public transport, pup and I were somewhat stressed. Basil especially after an encounter with a pair of fiddle-waving buskers who’d jumped our tube to play out-of-tune, high-pitched ditties.
