How much is that doggie in the window? The one with the waggley tail. How much is that doggie in the window? I do hope that doggies for sale. ~ Patti Page
It is a great childhood memory of mine, these miniature ceramic animals. It was the 70’s when these little guys appeared nestled in a bed of pillowy orange pekoe at our home. Yuck, I hated tea but we begged for it just to get another trinket surprise from red cardboard box. An auburn fox, an African elephant, a tiny bunny, my favourite….the horse of course. You could collect all of them but you had to buy the Red Rose tea….. I had long forgotten about these tiny treasures until I spied a massive grouping of them at a local antique store. The little dog caught my eye straight away, so sweetly sitting amongst a circus of decaffeinated critters. Ahhh, to be a kid again.
