dog going going gone

On February 12 there was an auction of dog art at the New York branch of Bonhams, a British auction house. Took me a tiny bit of digging but do you want to see some of it?

Thanks, enjoyed them. Loved 272. (Looks a bit like my dog.) The spiked collars looked a bit awful until I remembered they were used to keep the dog safe from enemies (wolves, if I remember right). Did I read that on one of your old blogs? Couldn't see why the red chair was in this sale...

Hi Parlance, I do believe you are correct about the spiked collars - also suitable for boar repellent for hunting dogs! And my search parameters may have mixed all kinds of crazy stuff - or chairs -- in there; oh well, did you need any new furniture? ; )
