GIVING A NEW LEASE OF LIFE
TO PIECES OF THE PAST
After Oscar and Aoife had made their previous owners a lot of money racing on the tracks, they were unceremoniously discarded like so many other greyhounds are. Luckily, they were rescued by the wonderful people at Tia Greyhound & Lurcher Rescue where they found their way into Clementene and her fiancé Pete's hearts and their home.
When Oscar and Aoife came to live with Clementene and Pete they were in a very sorry state, but with time and plenty of TLC they overcame the odds and transformed into the beautiful, graceful dogs that they were always meant to be. As Clementene was thinking about a logo for her business she thought about what her business stands for. Her ethos is to minimise waste by up-cycling the old to create something new. She doesn't believe in throwing away something perfectly good just because it looks a little on the shabby side. She soon began to draw on the strong parallels between her restoring furniture and rescuing Oscar and Aoife. Despite the knocks and scrapes the dogs have suffered over the years at the hands of others, they have a genuine beauty, inside and out, and they deserve a second chance in life. Not only that, but they also make a fabulous addition to the home. They are quite simply Clementene's inspiration. And so the greyhound logo was created.
Sadly Oscar and Aoife are no longer with us and as heart-breaking as it is, they will never be forgotten and their inspiration lives on in Clementene's work.
