Our muse, Rabbit, joined the studio in 2007. He is half Norfolk Terrier and half Jack Russell, but 100% personality. Not to be confused, Rabbit does not actually contain any traces of the hopping creatures, although he does spend his days bouncing around the office trying to see who will give him a treat or a scratch.
Lilly gets her best ideas when she is out and about in London with Rabbit, cycling around with him in the basket of her bike. He is always the first to try on all of the new designs. And, like any dog, he is really a human in disguise and has special ways to tell Lilly what he likes (or doesn’t!) about a new creation. Who knew a 10-pound pooch could have such an opinion.
Rabbit’s Favorite Picks? Well, he can often be seen donning the Hanbury RE16 Collar (and matching Lead when he needs to step out of the studio for a wee). For those brisk winter mornings, Rabbit loves his fashionable Watney Duffle Dog Coat. And most importantly, for lounging in the office, Rabbit nestles in his Sutton Pet Carrier, that doubles as a bed for the occasional afternoon snooze. After all, being the inspiration behind a business can be quite exhausting.

Inspired by the kind of antique bedding you might see in your bohemian granny’s cottage in the rolling countryside, the LovemyDog Ada Dog Quilt features a vintage Liberty Print on one side and pure cotton chambray on the reverse. Hand crafted and lightly quilted it is ideal to protect your chairs and beds and so comfy for your dog – wherever they like to sleep. " I particularly wanted something stylish but practical to go on my bed to stop Rabbit getting mud and marks on my bedsheets. Although he's not really allowed in the bedroom he sneaks in there when I'm not looking!" says Creative Director Lilly Shahravesh. Lettice the Miniature Dachshund is nestled in all cosy as you can see in the photo above but this bed spread is big enough for larger dogs like Labradors too. The Ada Dog Quilt is hand crafted in the UK and machine washable.
