Dog Years

Dog Years is a Birthday Card featuring a dog sitting with head raised and with text, ‘Happy Birthday (you’re 190 in dog years)’

The correspondence between dog years and human years is put at somewhere between seven and eight. That puts the ideal age for the human recipient of this card at around 25 years of age. That said, any age will be just perfect.

Who Is That Dog

The dog in the card belonged to someone who lived a few streets away from us in Edinburgh. I used to see the man and his dog walking along. And I would think to myself what a cute dog it was. The fact is that it is my wife Tamara would alerted me to the cuteness of small dogs. Previously you could say that I almost didn’t see them. They didn’t feature on my mental radar. That is not to say I didn’t notice dogs at all, far from it.

I noticed lurchers and border collies, and dogs of a certain size that seemed like working dogs. There’s a story to that, and it is from when I lived in the countryside. That’s another story, but one thing about these dogs was that they appealed to me, and small dogs were invisible to me.

Tamara changed all that. She pointed out the variety in the way they walk and in their personalities. My eyes were opened.

So one day on the street in Edinburgh I asked the man whether we could meet up and I would photograph the dog for a card, and that’s what happened.
