Daisy gets a dog

Each of the dolls has a pet, as well as a medium. For Daisy, it’s a dog and photography.

I spent most of my evenings for a month finding the right dog for Daisy.

First, she borrowed a beagle from my Lottie dolls

The beagle is cute, but it looks like a cartoon, while Daisy looks real.
Then, I got a set of dogs from Ebay.

This one was cute, but with Daisy’s mane, the dog’s hair was just too much additional distraction
But it was cute enough that *one* of the dolls got it.

The chow just looked far too stern.

And Melanie’s needle felted dog was so cute that Rosie took off with it.

although Daisy did manage to hold onto Melanie’s rabbit.

I got an actual, official Barbie dog off of eBay, but, good God! the thing is so enormous you can barely fit it into a shot, much less have Daisy put it in her should bag when she’s riding her bike.

I got these two amazing dogs off of Aliexpress

but, as you might be able to tell from the chipped ear on the sitting one, they’re very fragile and I just thought Daisy’s outdoor shoots might be too dangerous for them. I left them with Jane, instead.

Daisy ended up with the third dog from my first batch from eBay. I have a feeling it’s like a dalmatian without spots from 101 dalmatians, but, whatever it is, it just looks like the kind of dog that Daisy would have.

* Daisy is the creation of Andrea Meyer of Wildflower dolls. If a doll can be a muse (and, I’d argue, they can) Andrea creates muses.

In my (almost) 60th year on earth I decided to set my fashion dolls free of their clothes and accessories and send them on adventures. This is your window onto my own adventure into a land of crafts where I have zero skills, talent or mentors. Wish me (and my dolls) luck!
