Barbara Henderson from Morpeth purchased the Alice in Wonderland inspired Snowdog Down the Rabbit Hole as a way of giving back to a local children’s charity after her granddaughter was unwell when she was first born.
“I’d seen the odd Snowdog dotted around the North East but didn’t take part in the trail. It wasn’t until I read in a local newspaper that that they were going to be auctioned off that I considered buying one. When one of my granddaughters was born she was really poorly so since then I’ve been keen to support a children’s charity as a way of giving something back. When I bought tickets for me and my husband to attend the auction I had three different dogs in mind but was open minded. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire evening and it was topped off by winning Snowdog Down the Rabbit Hole. The whole event was brilliant and based on a wonderful idea. It’s a good job I haven’t got pots of money as I would have got carried away and ended up with loads due to the fantastic atmosphere on the night.”
Snowdog Down the Rabbit Hole has fitted in well to Barbara’s home and compliments a lot of her other ‘quirky’ homewares.
“Snowdog Down the Rabbit Hole takes pride of place in my living room, he fits in well as I have quite a few other odd things in the room. I intend to pass him on to my grandchildren and I’d love them to take him to Antiques Roadshow one day! I have three dogs and when I first told friends that I’d bought a Snowdog they asked what kind of dog that was as they thought he was another pet! He’s a real talking point when people visit. I wanted to keep him inside the house to keep him in as best condition as possible.”
