Spaniel Ballet

Spaniel Ballet

Spaniel Ballet caused a sensation with their appearances on Top of Pups in the 80's. The songs 'To Cut a long Walkie short' and Chant no 1 (I don't need this muzzle on) set Spaniel Ballet on the road to doggy stardom before the multi platinum smash hit 'Poo' cemented their place in the Dog Stars hall of fame. You can buy these Dog Star cards from my Etsy shop, and from mid November, they will be in Paperchase!!

Daft Pug

Daft Pug

Daft Pug are a French house trained music duo consisting of two mysterious pugs. Masters of disguise they rarely appear in public as themselves, leading some to critics to claim that they are actually a pair of Alsatians from Basildon. Influenced by Crusftwerk, their first album, 'Dogscovery' featured the top kennel club tunes 'Get Puppies' and 'One Paw Time'.

Shirley Basset

Shirley Basset

Shirley Basset is known by her legion of dog fans as 'Basset the Belter.' She rose to fame in the 1960's with her massive hit, 'Big Spaniel'. She is perhaps most famous for her renditions of the 'James Bonzo' theme tunes, 'Goldpointer' and 'Dalmatians are Forever'. Basset started living as a tax exile in 1968 but returned after two years when she realised that dogs don't have to pay tax. 

Elvis Pedigree

Elvis Pedigree

Elvis Pedigree wasn't the first dog to sing rhythm and blues but his hits 'Blue Suede Paws', 'Dogs Home Rock', 'That's all right Doggie' and 'Barking In the Chapel' made him the most influential. Managed by Colonel Tom Barker, Pedigree became an international dog superstar. His worldwide live TV concert, 'Howling from Hawaii' was watched by over 1 billion dogs and even some cats.

Jarvis Cocker Spaniel

Jarvis Cocker Spaniel

Jarvis Cocker Spaniel is known as front dog for the band, Pup and as the figurehead of the Britdog movement in the 1990's. Pup found fame with their breakthrough hits, 'Common Poodles' and 'Sorted for Leads and Wizz'. Jarvis was arrested at the BritDog awards in 1996 for attacking Michael Dachshund and after narrowly escaping being pup down, is now forced to wear a muzzle at all public appearances. 

Staffie Wonder

Staffie Wonder

This is one of my favourite 'Dog Stars' I think. Staffie Wonder was a pup prodigy who has become one of the most creative and loved musical dogs of all time.

I was born in Oxford and now live in South London with my husband and three children. I worked for many years as a fashion stylist, and even when I was doing that all I really wanted to do was draw.....
