Have You Seen My Dog?
This is a wonderful dog brooch which I bought at a market in Melbourne last year and which sits on my dressing table at home.
It was made by a little old man who is retired and just does it as a hobby. He makes all different kinds of dogs and has been wooed by a number of retailers, all of whom he has refused because he doesn't want to be tied down by commitments and wants to be able to go fishing whenever he feels like it.
I have looked for him on subsequent visits to Melbourne to no avail - I guess the fish must have been running.
I only wish I had bought a couple more.
