The “dogs” of Downton Abbey

Unless you’ve been under a rock recently, you’ve heard all the buzz about the wildly popular PBS series Downton Abbey. It is currently nearing the end of Season 3 (for US audiences), and if you haven’t seen it yet, I cannot recommend it highly enough!

For those of you familiar with the show, have you ever imagined what some of the characters might look like as dogs? Kim Parkhurst has, and has put together a collection she dubs Houndton Tabby on her Etsy store, Toadbriar. These are fantastic!
