Approximately 200 years ago the Parson John Russell (Jack) with his gentleman friends decided to design a dog specifically for hunting. The result was the Jack Russell, a tiny dog with energy to burn, catching foxes, badgers, and even larger wild mammals fearlessly. Since then this bright little bundle has become one of the most loved breeds in the UK and indeed worldwide. He still has energy to burn as he takes his owners for compulsory long walks through parks or woodland. He simply can't resist his ancestors urge to hunt and chase but now he has to be contented with fast and furious chasing of a ball or a stick, thrown by his beloved owner. This image has been perfectly recreated by Leslie Gerry in his exciting new range of animal designed products. The little powerhouse bursts across the mug in hot pursuit of....who knows what ? It doesn't matter; the effect is striking. Set against a backdrop design of maroon and rust, this is a quality piece which would add style to any kitchen. The mug is made from fine bone china, is dishwasher and microwave safe and comes beautifully presented in a gift box, making it the perfect gift for Jack Russell admirers and art lovers alike.
