Dogs are our loyal companions. They stick by us, through thick and thin.
This behavior is very endearing when you’re sick with the flu, and can’t get off the couch. Your dog won’t leave your side, until you’re better.
Regardless of whether you’re away from home for a week, or for just a few minutes, your pet will greet you with a wagging tail.
If someone threatens to harm you, first, they’ll have to deal with your dog. He’ll gladly jump in harm’s way, regardless of whether it endangers his own well being.
For this reason, domesticated dogs are often referred to as “man’s best friend.” They are a woman’s best friend as well.
The Bradford Exchange recognizes this special bond between people and dogs, in its Faithful Friend line of handbags. A number of the most popular breeds are featured.
The handbag below is imprinted with a picture of a Maltese, a toy dog that might have originated in Central Asia, according to Wikipedia. It’s believed to be an ancient breed, possibly described in writings dating back to 500 BC.
This handbag shown features a beautifully detailed photograph of a Maltese. This purse is trimmed with leather and has an outside pocket. Each style has a special dog charm, representing the specific breed. If you look closely, you can see a small Maltese charm on the pocket zipper.
Boxers can be mischievous. One night, I opened our sliding patio door to let me own Cocker Spaniel into the house. I almost ended up with a Boxer as well. Our neighbors puppy came into my yard and onto my deck. He desperately wanted to get inside my kitchen.
So I can see why so many people love these friendly and playful dogs.
This endearing picture of a boxer on the bag below is highly detailed. Up close you can see the soft folds of skin on his face and even the tiny, delicate whiskers around his mouth. This popular and well-loved breed originated in Germany.
Cocker Spaniel Handbag
I’m probably biased, because I own a Cocker Spaniel, but I think this handbag is especially cute. Here is the Faithful Friends Cocker Spaniel tote, which is available in a number of other breeds, including Westie, Rottweiler, Jack Russell Terrier, Yellow Labrador, Pomeranian and more.
