REAL PETS: GIRL’S BEST FRIEND
GEORGIA MARTIN, DIRECTOR OF ONLINE STORE THE UNDONE, SHARES HER HOME (AND HER CUSHIONS) WITH ENGLISH STAFFORDSHIRE TERRIER DILLON
We play fetch with Staffordshire terrier Dillon and her owner, The Undone’s Georgia Martin
DILLON HAS BEEN WINNING HEARTS ALL OVER SYDNEY with her energetic and endearing personality. This pup has an insatiable fondness for homewares, especially cushions. How did you meet Dillon?
We met in a backyard near Newcastle on a hot summer’s day. She was the smallest in the litter and started playing instantly. If Dillon was a person, what do you think she would be like? Bossy, a tad bogan, loyal, a bit of a sook but lots of fun. She has a huge personality! Is Dillon pro or against dogs
in clothes? Pro! She has her own pyjamas that she wears to bed – she even lifts her feet when I’m putting them on her. She also has a set of jackets to wear to the park when it’s cold. Does Dillon have any party tricks? Yes, my favourite would have to be her fist pump. If Dillon had access to your credit card what’s the first thing she’d buy? She is obsessed with toys and I’m scared to think how many she’d buy. She gets so excited when we bring a new one home and does laps around the house. The last show Dillon bingewatched on the couch with you? Dillon loves the Discovery Channel. When she sees animals on television she tilts her head and tries to talk to them. What are Dillon’s best and worst housemate habits? The best is that she loves cuddles. The worst is that she has eaten every cushion we have. Does Dillon have any quirks?
Every time she sees strawberries she starts barking and jumping around. We thought we were imagining it, so we assessed her reaction to other fruits and the results came in: Dillon is a strawberry hater!
DILLON, 1, LIVES WITH GEORGIA AND HER PARTNER KIERAN IN SYDNEY’S CHIPPENDALE. @THEUNDONESTORE AND @OURDOGDILLON Recently converted Before Dillon, Georgia says she wasn’t really an animal person. “I honestly never in a million years thought I would own a Staffy, let alone be so obsessed with her. I can’t imagine life without her.”
Park following Georgia says her young charge is proving popular at the park. “Dillon gets so much attention and now expects it from everyone. I’m trying to teach her a healthy balance of affection and discipline, but puppies are just so cute!”
Apartment living Georgia and her partner both own businesses and were after a dog who would suit apartment and studio life – Dillon was the answer.
Pet therapy “One of the best things about having a dog is how much they look after you. Dillon makes us get out in the fresh air, switch off and have fun,” Georgia says.
