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."
