Most of the things I collect are things that are useful & somehow that helps me to justify their purchase. Until recently. I think I've accidentally started a new collection. I have long been drawn to dog figurines but I just recently broke down & bought these. Both in the same day. It seems that once I broke the seal on this new love, there was no stopping me. It's a good thing I'm behaving myself & stearing clear of the antique stores or I'm sure my pups would start multiplying.
