This is my latest obsession – glittering Mexican dog banks. There is a Mexican grocery store in town that sells all kinds of ceramic dog breeds.
I bought, decorated, and sold all the Chihuahua banks and had just about walked away when this little guy (um, girl?) winked at me. All the banks have so much personality, especially this one, I couldn’t resist adding to my collection. I call her Red Bull. She is red and pink with a strand of pearls and a shiny tiara. Hey, there are such thing as girl bulldogs, right?
Tomorrow I’ll post the picture of the Labrador Librarian – although you may have already seen him in my Ellen video. I also recently picked up 20 mini ceramic Chihuahua statues, which I’m going trick out very soon. I’m not going to sell any of them, I’m saving them for our upcoming Heard Museum exhibit this fall!
