Theo & Julia's Beautiful Ol' Girl

Thank you so much to Julia for sending this pup-portrait in. Julia inherited this machine 6 years ago with a house move, and it has become the heart of the home during the coldest months. Theo, the household hound, sits regally by it keeping warm.

The claret cooker is a Post '74, but with the retro styling of 'Classic' lids.

The origin of Theo's name struck a chord with us - "Our Springer is called Theo. He is named after the bomb sniffer-dog that belonged to Corporal Liam Tasker who was killed in Afghanistan on March 1st 2011. His Springer Spaniel Theo died later the same day from a seizure. They are buried together. We got our Springer puppy shortly after that and we were so moved by what had happened we decided it would be nice to name him Theo in memory of Liam’s dog."

It suits him very well we think. Are any of you following #crufts2019? Beautiful working and pastoral breeds today! Feet up, cuppa, dogs - bliss! Katy x

Katy Boys

Katy is a rural girl at heart. She loves long walks, home cooking, paddling in rivers, warm fires and socks and stomping in leaves with her children. After studying ‘drawing stuff’ at university in Bath, Katy spent 10 years selling wares and managing folk at Habitat in Bath. Welcoming children into her world prompted her to return to drawing things, people and places from home. This led her to us at Blake & Bull and the rest is history. She draws our stuff, provides cuddles for the office dog, and is here to chat to you lovely lot.
