Vintage Doggies

I am joining Vintage Friday over at Common Ground...
I am also joining Show and Tell Friday at Romantic Home.  I wanted to share a few of the vintage Japanese dog figurines that I have been collecting for years.  It began with a boxer figurine my Nanny gave me as a child.  They live playfully in my sunroom.  I have grouped them by breeds and families.  The families live in the old hutch my husbands granddad built along with a soup tureen collection.  There is a tray of poodles that sit above my sink on the bar that watch me do dishes each day.  They occasionally get a bath too ; )
