Onion: Celebrity Bull Terrier

Charting the rise to celebrity of a miniature bull terrier with a taste for the limelight. Onion has been in Ewan McGregor movie 'Scenes of a Sexual Nature', has a light modelled on her bullie curves, and is the face of the canine social event of the year: Peckham Pet-tastic! It's a starry life for a pampered pooch.

Thursday, March 22

Canine cosmonaut?

Onion has the great good fortune to have been chosen by fab artist Rachael House to be the poster pooch for her next ‘canine art social event’, Lewisham Pet-Tastic to be held on Saturday 14 April 2007. Rachael has hand-made a beautiful spacesuit for Onion, complete with badges that honour Laika and other pioneering dogs in space.
As well as the chance to meet the famous Onion(!), you can dress up your dog and join the fancy-dress picnic from midday and the parade at 3pm. You can even have your face painted as a dog, decorate a dog-shaped biscuit or a dog mask.
So, start making your costumes (on any theme you like!) and please come and join Onion at Lewisham Market, Lewisham High Street, Lewisham SE13 7HB.

For more information contact Deborah Efemini, Lewisham Town Centre Manager, 020 8297 5635 or deborah.efemini@lewisham.gov.uk or artist Rachael House on rachaelhouse@btinternet.com.

    Ah, my dear Miss Onion, would that I were able to attend and meet you. Alas, I shall have to read about your day from here.

    Ooooh Onion! Now this sounds very interesting indeed....I will tell mum and see what she says. My dads parents live near to Peckham so we know the area well!
    Thanks for tipping me the wink ;)

    PS you do look rather handsome in silver!

    Ooh, sounds like a great chance to meet up. My Nan lives near Lewisham - I'm planning my outfit now - not sure I can compete with your space suit, though.

    Hugs and Licks,

    That spacesuit is soooooo glamtastic! I believe silver is 'de rigeur' this season and Wilson says look out for bronze and gold for your autumn accesories. Onion, you're the perfect 'dog'-walk model (I couldn't say catwalk could I?)

    Look forward to seeing pictures of Pet-tastic. Have a lovely day.

    With woofs from Wilson (and his faithful servant Felicity)

    You look SOOOO cute! I have done a little blog about your appearance in Scenes of a Sexual Nature. You were fantastique!!!

    Your owner is very clever! You know all the right people so good for you for being such a good London ambassador!!!

    And good for you for saving Bullies.

    You look pretty cool in that suit, when will you visit the Mars?

    What a life you lead my dear friend!!!!

    If you were in Somerset Maugham's era, he may write about you.

    Miss you

    We were thrilled to receive an invitation to Pet-tastic - Wilson gave it a good sniffing over.

    Distance and a full diary are the other problems, otherwise we'd have come and cheered you on.

    And well-done Onion - donating your fee to such a good cause. Big licks all round I think.

    G'day Onion,
    You're a really handsome doggie. I hope you don't mind if I link to you. xxx Asta

    I'm a recent fan of Laika too. Is your launch going to be right there at the market?
