A few weeks ago lil’s sis & I took Posetta Baddog on a Friday afternoon outing in the car to a more salubrious part of London, where the air is altogether more rarified, and the streets cleaner. Madam clearly approved as she hopped out of the car, sniffed the air and trotted with purpose towards Elizabeth Street and her emporium of choice – dog mecca Mungo & Maud.

There are pet shops and then there are pet shops. Mungo & Maud is firmly in the latter camp: this is where smart dogs come to be fitted out in cashmere and tweed coats (no pink nylon T shirts or spangles sully this shop floor), find organic dog treats, sensible collars and delicious smelling unguents to perfume their fur.

Not being fans of the Barbie school of canine accoutrements, we’ve always loved Mungo & Maud. But not as much as PB who immediately felt more than at home, as she gleefully investigated each corner, basket and bowl.

In the photos she is modelling several varieties of dog coat – it’s really hard to find coats that fit the long bodies of dachshunds and both the Mungo & Maud sweaters and coats fitted her really well. I suspect that whatever the size of dog you could find a solution here.

This is a dog who would be able to find a tennis ball on the surface of the moon, so the presence of buckets of balls, toys and bones whipped her into paroxysms of joy.

Look at that tail go! She managed to wrestle a rubber bone and a new lead from the very, very forebearing shop. For me that’s another thing that sets Mungo & Maud apart: the staff are beyond charming and tolerant, feeding PB snackettes and and generally letting her run amok.

On the way home PB managed to steal her bag of organic carrot treats from the M&M carrier bag. Result: one happy dog.

And her new very smart lead (thank you Mungo & Maud!)

Love these pictures, in particular the first which shows such genuine love (lil’ sis for PB, PB for the bone).

I sadly have no canine friends but have good friends that do so will pass on the knowledge (and will definitely tag along if I can),

P.S. I really enjoyed your recent coverage & tweeting from Singapore – thank you.

@Bird: That is truly a genius comment which I had to immediately email to my sister! Oh do pass on the word. M&M is a genuinely lovely store & properly deserves it. And thank you for the kind words re Singapore: I love it there so it’s wonderful to enthuse other people too. LLGxx

What a cute post! I miss having a dog and reading about PB is really inspiring. Can’t believe they have dog leashes in my favourite colour – purple!

This looks AMAZING! Definitely want to take my dog

My, Posetta seems to enjoy the finer things in life. And how well behaved she is! My younger, Eli, would be the proverbial bull in the china shop, whereas my Rosy would make a straight line to the comfiest bed. (She is 9).

Wonderful pictures. We are considering a third dog and pictures and descriptions of the antics of Posetta Baddog have us all intrigued with the idea of her breed.

Hope lil’sis is well.

@Christine: She is a typical miniature wire-haired dachshund, but I don’t think they are so good with children – they are essentially hunting animals and very single-minded, so it’s always worth bearing that in mind.

And PB was SO naughty. Looks can be deceiving! LLGxx

That’s one fancy dog shop! I like the leash. Most leashes I’ve used have hurt my hand especially if the dog pulls. That leash looks nice and soft 🙂

Love the blurred tail from so much wagging.

I think Posetta Baddog is a real Shopping Hound and just might have a future as a super-paw-del! I love her new lead and the shop looks beautiful.

My Taffy loves carrot treats as well…

@Cynthia: My sister certainly thinks so! LLGxx
