Forever Foxed

J1 is always looking for greeting cards with Wire Fox Terriers on them. It's turned into a bit of an obsession over the years. Last Christmas she hunted high and low for nice cards, and while she bought some cute Xmas photo cards from the Fox Terrier Network, she couldn't get any she liked that featured quirky drawings or illustrations of us handsome mutts. Instead of doing her usual moaning, she was spurred on to make some herself. Rather to her surprise, they were quite well received, and this, in turn, made her wonder if anyone else would be interested. After much agonising, she designed some more cards (inspired by handsome me, of course!) commissioned a website and so hey presto, Forever Foxed is about to be launched on the unsuspecting public.




The cards feature our 3 favourite terrierific breeds; WFTs, Airedales and of course, Irish Terriers. More card designs coming soon but J1 can only draw dogs that are kinda square!

The website was designed by the lovely Reagan (another WFT owner) at Zea Creative who has the patience of a SAINT, dealing with J1's stoopid questions. Thanks Reagan!

We'd also like to thank S at Idleformat for his technical expertise. Thanks pal!

Please take a look at the website; we hope you like it!

As your No 1 fan, have already been & given it the once over!
Looks good, reads well & great images of WFT's, even ones on wheels!
I'd be J1's first customer but my stupid server says 'interenet page not available' @ crucial paying stage...
As your JI's muse, will look for more crazy images!

lots of pats & pets

I've just emailed gus to ask him to add you to the DWB News business list - and seen that he's already asked you.

I couldn't get the pix up either - is it browser dependent? I'm using Safari on Mac, I've not tried it on Opera which is the other one I use.

Haha to J1 wanting to change her name to Pippaluk - what a hoot. Does she have the book? Mistress has a nice Pippaluk book? J1 must be old like mistress.

Hey Jackson,
Very cool web site!!! We're impressed. The cards are so cute. Mama will have to buy some for sure. Since your Mama likes to draw the square terriers, she could do Scotties, Sealyhams, Welsh, Kerry Blue, Lakeland, give you some ideas?? We'll add your site to our blog & to Mama's clothes blog too ok?? Good luck!!!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Lenny said...

Wow Jackson! That looks great. I only get my allowance in dollars, not Euros - if I "borrow" my mom's credit card can I still order from the site?

Your friend, Lenny
