Butts In The Air, Like They Just Don't Care

Vintage pottery animals with their butts in the air and holes where their tails ought to be.

I only have two, so it's not a collection yet. The cat is a rather popular planter motif and typically they had cactus planted to be their kitty tails. But the dog is more of a mystery -- despite a partial label on the bottom.

The hole is too small for the pup to be a planter; hubby suspects it had a bobble-tail which wagged. The tag reads Little Pete (or, it could be Little Peter), but exhaustive searches have turned up nothing. Know something about Little Pete or his missing tail? Let me know.

Meanwhile, I keep my eyes opened for a third vintage pottery animal with it's hole-y butt up in the air.

Reminds me of an air freshener my grandmother kept in her bathroom. You'd fill the body with the freshener liquid, then there was sort of a wick thing that was placed in the liquid and stuck up out of the animal making it look like a tail.

Reminds me of an ancient ceramic bunny I inheirited that had a hole in the butt. You filled it with cotton balls, and pulled them out as you needed them- Kinda makes more sense with a bunny than a puppy, tho...
