As any regular reader will know, LLG is, shall we say, a dachshund-friendly space. Whilst our first love is the real, wriggly thing, (take a bow, please,  Posetta Baddog), we have been known to go for a facsimile or two (we partic love Katie Hillier’s paperclip dachsies)…which brings me to this charm by Italian jewellery collection Dodo.

Dodo’s first UK flagship opens tomorrow in Sloane Square in London where this piece of dachsie love will be on sale, along with a whole family of the charms for which Dodo is know for in its native Italy (Octopi, baby goats (yes, really), bats etc).

Not so familiar in the UK, Dodo was created by Italian jewellery brand Pomellato in 1995, and each charm has a particular message for its wearer. The Dachshund charm apparently says, “You’re great!”. I’m not so sure: in my experience a dachshund is more likely to be saying, “I’M great”…

The charms themselves are actually lovely, but it’s tricky to read the meanings behind the charms without a chuckle or two.  If someone gave me a goat charm, I’m not sure that ‘you’re always in my thoughts’ would be what I thought they meant…Ahem.

Prices start for the gold pieces from £110 for a small pendant, £175 for a medium pendant or £250 for large pendants.

So cute. The Imperial War Museum shop had some little fuzzy wool dachsies for sale when I was last there a month or so ago. Couldn’t find them on their website though.


@Catherine: oooh how fabulous! I must take a look next time I am there. Thanks for the heads up! LLGxx


I’d forgotten all about Dodo! I picked up a charm bracelet in Florence about five years ago, and it gave me such joy whenever I looked at it. I can’t even remember what the charm was at this point, but thank you for the reminder! I wonder how many Dachshund owners will buy a Dodo charm for their dog.
