Mutt Mugs

Here's something for the dog lover in all of us. I found these enchanting handpainted mugs from Blue Witch Ceramics Inc, a family owned company founded in 2007 by Art Schuller and sister in-law Pomm Bunyakhet (Madame Pomm).

Chow Chow - Originates from China, and originally bred for herding, hunting, protection, and cart-pulling.

German Shepherd - A pastoral dog, the German Shepherd is loved the world over as a family pet.

Great Dane Harlequin - Shares the loyal, gentle characteristics of other Great Danes, but has a beautiful and distinctive colouration which is sometimes mistaken for a Dalmatian.

Greyhound - Known for its speed, and dating back as far as 4000 b.c.

Irish Wolfhound - The Irish Wolfhound is the tallest of all dogs, and was originally bred for hunting wolves and lions.

Maltese - With its dainty and luxurious appearance, the Maltese is lively and sweet-natured. Bred for companionship and originates from the island of Malta.

Pug - Ideal as a family pet, or as a watchdog, the Pug is outgoing, tough and charming. Originally bred in ancient China for royalty and companionship.

Poodle - From its roots as a retriever, the Poodle's distinctive look has made it famous around the world and is known to be an intelligent, and thoughtful breed.

Basset Hound - Laidback, affectionate and thrives on company.

Akita - The heavy-boned, thick-furred Akita is known for its loyalty and strong protective instinct. Akita means 'tender in heart, strong in strength'. Remember Hatchi, the Akita-ken who waited every day for 9 years at the train station until the last train for his master in the movie "Hachiko: A Dog's Story"?

The children and I had a good giggle at the mugs! But the movie - we saw that a few months ago and I just sobbed. So terribly sad.
