Woah, it’s been a while since we’ve done a post! We are hoping everyone is happy and healthy as we have entered into this new and exciting year!
We have lots of new things on the go! We are happy to report on 2 upcoming sales we will be participating in! The first is the Dachshund UN Marketplace! Between February 28th to March 3rd there will be 4 performance installations of the Dachshund UN at Harbourfront Centre here in Toronto. During each performance there will be a marketplace with vendors! Please check the Harbourfront website for show times!

Our second sale is at this years Spring One of a Kind show from March 27th-31st! We will be participating as part of SarahAnaDesigns in the new Etsy section of the show! We are very excited!
As you can see we will have our work cut out for us in the next few months! We will be busy making our old faithful designs as well as developing some new ones so be sure to check in often!
If you wish to pre-order jewellery for pick up at the Dachshund UN then please use Promo Code PICKUPUN when checking out of our Etsy shop. In using this code we know not to ship your piece and that you will be picking it up at the event!
Can’t wait to see everyone at these events!
I have to say that one of the things I like best about my job is when I open up my e-mail to find a new order and the exciting moment that follows when I get to see where in the world I will be sending my jewellery!
I recently bought a map and started to mark on the map where I have sent my doxie jewellery! I brought the map with me to Wienerfest and it was a real conversation starter. I was told by previous customers places they had sent my jewellery or places they intended to send it. I even had a woman tell me she was going to send my business card to the breeder where she got her dog back in Germany!
So here is my list of places I have sent S’wag so far. If you have purchased a piece and sent it somewhere (or you live somewhere) that is not on our list we would love to hear about it! I think S’wag has travelled more places then I have! I can’t wait to see where S’wag will travel to next!

Sometimes don’t you just need to set your eyes on a pawsitively precious puppy pic? Or a cute video starring a furry friend? It’s so dreary out today, it’s definitely one of those days that could use some brightening!
Check out the Puppy Love section for cute photos, videos and other fun stuff!
If you have any pics, videos or links to share, send them my way!
Would you love to wake up on Christmas morning to find a puppy under the tree!? Oh my! I would squeal so much with excitement! I think my heart would melt! (This idea for a Christmas present for me is not a practical one though, so friends and family if you are reading this don’t get any ideas! haha)
If you know another dreamer who is wishing to wake up to find a puppy under the tree on Christmas, but this idea is not practical for them either, why not get them a piece of S’wag Jewellery! There are lots of different designs to chose from! Their face will light up when they see the box with the puppy paw ribbon. It is oh so cute! Your new necklace or bracelet may not be able to cuddle and give soft kisses but it’s the next best things. It will be loyal, loving and get you lots of attention!
Probably one of the most famous or recognizable Dachshunds in the art world was Picasso’s doxie Lump (pronounced loomp – meaning rascal).
Lump was said to be the inspiration for some of Picasso’s artwork, most famously his print The Dog.
Searching the web I found hundreds of pics of Picasso and his muse. I also found an interesting blog that tells the story of Picasso and Lump. Check out the blog here! There are lots of great photos of Picasso and Lump. He was quite the poser!
And if the story really interests you and piques your curiousity (as it did me) there is actually a book written about Picasso and his pooch. Picasso and Lump : A Dachshund’s Odyssey is available at Chapters/Indigo. I’m going to have to check it out!
