Ca­nine a gem of a celebrity

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

A SPE­CIAL four-legged em­ployee has ar­rived at Thomas Mei­hofer Jew­ellery De­sign on Rokeby Road.

Own­ers Thomas Mei­hofer and Wendy Page of­fi­cially be­came “puppy par­ents” to 18-week-old Xoloitzcuintli Dex­ter last month.

“As well as pro­vid­ing hours of en­ter­tain­ment for all of us at Thomas Mei­hofer, Dex­ter’s job de­scrip­tion in­cludes mod­el­ling and road test­ing Thomas’ new range of cus­tom de­signed ster­ling sil­ver dog tags, which have been made to re­flect his breed and per­son­al­ity,” Ms Page said.

The hair­less Xoloitzcuintli is an an­cient prim­i­tive dog na­tive to Mexico that dates back at least 3000 years.

“Dex­ter is be­com­ing quite a celebrity in Su­bi­aco,” Ms Page said.

“Ev­ery time we go on one of our fre­quent walks, peo­ple stop and ask about him and his breed. Be­ing hair­less, he at­tracts a lot of at­ten­tion.”
