Over the years I have seen many Cigarette Packet Dogs and none of them have been exactly the same. The basic method of joining the strips together is the same but the design of the dogs does vary slightly from person to person. Some have longer/shorter legs, tail, neck, body and some add separate ears. This gives each dog a character of its own.
Exhibition of various dogs put on by Brian in Eastleigh Library.
"Mack" the Little Scottie Dog
Owner: Colin Fleming (pictured)
Maker: Colin Fleming
Length: Height: 13½" Width:
Colin has been making Cigarette Packet Dogs for over 35yrs. Over this time he has made many hundreds and given them all away to friends and charities.
His main object now is to prevent this cardboard dog from becoming extinct. He has produced an instruction booklet with some useful information in it which will be shared here when time permits.
"Thank You" Colin for your contribution.
