Boots the Dog-Black
Boots was named after his comically large feet, which he is forever tripping over. Clumsiness aside, however, Boots has the most prized nose of all the Nana Huchy hounds. In his younger & more vulnerable years he worked as a truffle dog in Italy, where he spent long days gallivanting through the tall Tuscan forests, sniffing out the rarest & tastiest truffles. Now he lives in Tasmania, where he works as a part-time truffle hunter. Sometimes he will sneak some truffles from work to give to his pen pals, Buddy Dog & Buddy the Pup.
About Nana Huchy-
As the sun rises in the land of Nana Huchy, the toysfolk stir. Dragons, dinosaurs, & dolls, mingle with sea creatures & native animals, going about their complex, daily lives & relishing their roles of finding a small child to love.
Even as grown ups, we never forget our most treasured toys. The ones threadbare from love & brandishing stains due to never leaving our side. The ones immortalised in baby photos & recalled fondly by the names we gave them. In turn, the ones that evolved our imaginations, always present at sleepovers or Nana’s house & self-assigned confidants of our childhood secrets - the stuff that stays with you forever & ever.
Established in 2003, Melbourne-based Nana Huchy is the brainchild of Lucy Morrison, mother of two rambunctious humans & one very affectionate dog. The brand curates classic toys, gifts & baby blankets made from beautifully soft materials & produced with superior quality – a nod to Nana & the things she used to craft. Made with love, the goal is always to encourage imagination & of course, to make memories for a long time to come.
