Lurcher inspiration - behind the latest Lotty B silk collection

This happy, long dog, Cupid, is based in Tasmania, but his owner was keen to share this picture with us all which shows the sheer, unbridled joy of his beachlife. What a lucky boy!

A "lurcher" is not in itself a breed of dog, but a type of hound that results from cross breeding a sighthound with another type of working dog. However, here in the UK we mostly refer to both sighthounds and "lurchers" as long dogs - and they are very much loved - this year a Greyhound won best of breed in the Hound class at Crufts, so this gives an indication of the respect we have for these beautiful creatures, irrespective of whether they are pure bred or crossed.

Lotty's gorgeous rendition of the long dog in her print "Lurcher" is shortly to be released as a silk collection - and we cannot wait! 

This little collage of photos shows some long dogs belonging to friends and family of the PHM team - from the hairy, the old and the truly elegant: Collage of long dogs, belonging to friends and family of Pink House MustiqueSo to the "lurcher" silk collection - it is utterly F A B - this little preview gives you a little hint of the glories to come:
