There's a New Girl in Town

This sassy miss came home 
with me from a recent estate sale.

It was love at first sight for me.
She is a Staffordshire
 begging spaniel jug or pitcher.

I'm not certain about her pedigree,
though I feel certain she is definitely vintage.
Perhaps a vintage reproduction.

What matters most is she is black and white 
and the perfect companion to this gentlemen
who I've had for several years.  

He too is a black and white begging spaniel
jug or pitcher with a tricorn hat.

Don't they 
make the perfect pair?

I think perhaps Mister is of newer vintage,
but that's OK,  he fits right in with
all of the Courtly Checks around the house.
He was a thrifty find at Goodwill some years ago.

They could easily be
parents to these two sweet pups.

Yes,  I feel as if
a family has been reunited!

They are currently part of a vignette
on the dining room buffet.

I gathered a group of 
Courtly Check pieces and filled
them with summer hydrangeas.

Along with a piece of
figurative art by a favorite NY artist.

Tell me!  Do you have a fondness for
these Staffordshire dogs?
Are you a fan of black and white?
