Samuel Johnson (1709-84), compiler of the first English Dictionary, was not only a writer and critic, but also a renowned and witty conversationalist. Dr Johnson – as he is always known – was devoted to his cat Hodge who lived with him at 17 Gough Square, London. Although he is reputed to have said “...but he is a very fine cat indeed...” we would like to think that should he have owned a dog, Dr Johnson might well have said “Here lives a very fine dog indeed”. This popular wall tile showing a proud dog, representing dogs great and small, pedigree and mongrel appears on a baroque background. The ideal gift for dog lovers everywhere.
