Pirelli terriers-Just for fun.
« on: March 23, 2008, 01:18:22 PM »
Here is a photograph of my 'family' of Pirelli terriers.  Some of the pups have three colour eyes and some two and I think I need a yellow pup to make the 'family' complete.  My husband seems to think that there is not enough kennel space to cope with any more. :)

Don't forget that you also get different coloured irises and ears too. How big is your largest?

Frank - The largest is 4-3/4" long by 4-1/4" high (120 x 105 mm), it's the blue one at the back. 
Also, I have emailed photographs to you of a possible Pirelli Pegasus and a labelled clear Pirelli foal for the Zoo, let me know if they don't arrive.

Pegasus is definite match to the catalogue in the Zoo. I watched the auction to see how many Zoo members spotted it :-)

Pirelli called these dogs, Standing Scotties. sizes Small and Medium. At some point they must have added Large too, There are also a versions with; short snout, sitting, short tail, long tail, and bulging belly. Must have been their best selling line. Perhaps we will find out more when the article by an ex-Pirelli worker is added to the Zoo.

Although labelled as Pirelli, do we know who made these and where yet, Frank?

Which will tell us the designers too  :)

There is also an article in the Glass Zoo showing one of the guys in the works making a horse.
