We're Gonna Need Some Coffee. Soon!

Yes, Coffee. Pleeease!
"Armer Hund"
"Poor Fellow"
Literally: Poor Dog


Whenever I happen to run
from St. Stephen's Cathedral
along Rotenturmstrasse,
I look for this darling stuffed dog,
part of a varied collection
of stuffed bears and toys
of the owner of this exquisite
antiques and interior store.
I thank him at each and every visit
from the bottom of my heart
for his sweet and witty exhibition
of toys.
I also love his superb
selection of antique and new bentwood furniture,
including designs by Josef Hoffmann,
Adolf Loos and Koloman Moser,
manufactured by Thonet and Kohn.

Gone to the dogs,
not necessarily a harsh fate
here in Vienna!
