Ronnie & Delilah

How adorable are this pair happily posing atop a wooden banded trunk I brought home at the weekend.  Meet Ronnie and Delilah, who have become firm friends in the short time they have known each other.
Ronnie is such an inquisitive, cheeky chap.
A big dog, standing tall and firmly stuffed with straw.
Fur intact with delicate pink underhairs, no nips or tucks, tail upright.  
He's ready to play!
And this delightful little wide eyed baby is Delilah.  
A wonderfully kitsch painted pottery money box in fabulous condition.
Her head balanced on a spring, she gently nods!

They will both be with me at the Sherborne Antiques Fair this Saturday.

those are so cute. I agree with your comments about the book, and believe me you'll be seeing an awful lot more of her "inner goddess," and him "cocking his head to one side!!"

Wish I could be there! After our recent trip down your way Yorkshire seems awfully dull.

Ronnie is such a sweet dog. It would be nice to have a real dog that looked like that. Ronnie and Delilah look like they were meant to be together.
