We are generally known as a Nation of dog lovers and Emma Bridgewater too has always had a dog or two in her life. It’s no surprise that Labradors (Black and Yellow) and Lurchers are included in the designs as that was her favourite combo dog mix for many years. Although we understand recently she has a toy poodle often seen nestling in her car foot as well.
Along with the above breeds this delightful range of Emma Bridgewater Dog Mugs includes Terrier, Border Terrier and Cocker Spaniel, with hopefully more new designs in the pipeline.
Labradors are one of the UK’s favourite breeds as they make perfect pets. They are a type of gun dog and were originally used for helping fisherman and retrieving fishing nets and fish on the Labrador coast and this is one of the reasons why they make excellent swimmers. It may also partly explain their immense appetites – they only got fed by the fishermen during the fishing season so they needed to enjoy food while it lasted! They are intelligent, fun, loving, kind and loyal, so much so that they are used as guide dogs for the blind and for other assistance needs - if only we could teach ours to help with the washing!
Terriers are another popular breed and are quite small, very active and a bit fearless but very brave –originally used for hunting and pest control of rabbits they make good companions but need a firm hand. Border Terriers are affectionate and fun loving and a little better behaved than normal terriers. With their wide spectrum of temperaments most people can find their match with a terrier breed.
Lurchers are not purebred and are generally crossbred with greyhounds, deerhounds, terriers or collies for example. Modern lurcher breeds make great family pets, they too are fun loving and caring and can be quite brave. How they look, size and coat type is variable depending on type of breed crossed with.
The Cocker spaniel is sometimes called a merry cocker because of their lively friendly and enthusiastic behaviour. They are gentle and loving, adore children and also can be used as gun dogs. That’s why they are one of the most popular dog breeds in the UK today.
If you own a four legged friend or know someone who has a pampered pooch then these Dogs Mugs are sure to please. Or if someone helps you out with yours either dog walking or dog sitting then let them know how much you appreciate their help and reward them with a mug treat! It’s probably a little excessive to buy a mug for your very own mutt but then one of our Labradors is partial to a cup of tea…
Let man’s best friend delight your best friend!
