PostSubject: And then there were dogs...   Wed Dec 07, 2016 6:27 pm

While I've always been a 'mostly horses' collector, other creatures have always been sneaking in.
Like the odd dinosaur here, the cute puppy I-have-no-idea-how-he-snuck-into-my-purchase-order there...

A few I might have even been intentional Razz

Then at the thrift shop last weekend, I spotted something in a bag of toys.  (The toy bags are always the first things I go for; this is often a lot less awkward when I bring my daughter along, at least until she starts rolling her eyes at me).  And there was a Breyer Sheltie!  Being in Canada, Breyers are generally scarce because they are SO expensive, so finding any kind of Breyer is a treat.  And finding a dog is fun since they are not even as common as the horses.  

So I now had myself a cute little agility dog:

Of course, there were a whole bunch of other things in the bag...

...a rather very nice assortment of dogs, which I had never seen before, with an attention to detail they obviously weren't random dollar-store dogs:

THAT FACE.

Labelled Procon, it did take me a bit of detective work to figure out these were CollectA puppies.  
Which was ironic, since I had just bought two CollectA dogs last month.  
I guess it's inevitable - sometimes, a collection finds YOU! Razz

Allllllll together now...

This is an amazing assortment of dogs. Congratulations on finding them! You seem to collect a lot of the same types of animals that I do. I love the naturalistic-looking unicorn in your icon as well.

Thanks, everyone!  My dog collection sure seems to be a sneaky and persistent one Wink  
Ironically, I only have one other Breyer dog - another sheltie whom I painted about ten years ago:

I'm hopeful that the rumours about Breyer bringing back their "companion animal line" this year are true, and that they may become more accessible again Very Happy

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] ~ the Breyer dog is supposed to be 1:9 like the traditional scale horses; he measure about 10cms from tail tip to nose tip, and is made out of hard plastic (though not the same type as the horses).

And thanks for your kind words about the unicorn in my avatar - yes, she is one of my custom pieces, done on the Schleich Percheron mare into a primitive-type unicorn; her name is Urd. I suppose one of these days I'll have to dig up my pictures and do a photo share for her, too :)

And thank you everyone to the warm welcome to the board!
