MARTINA MEIER AT THE CHRISTINE KÖNIG GALLERY
Q: How did you get into dogs and what lifestyle do you associate with them?
A: I suddenly had a patchwork family with a house and a garden, so the only thing missing was the right dog for perfect happiness. Well, meanwhile a Labradoodle belongs to the right lifestyle ... may be - but back then, about seven years ago, it was simply love at first sight!
Q: How often do you talk to your dog and about what (fashion, style ...)?
A: I talk to Nike about everything, but I'm sure he doesn't always listen. For him it becomes important only when he hears the word "Bappi" (food), "let's go baba" (walk), "make a Lacki". With commands he also listens, but doesn't always want to.
Q: Your favorite restaurants, bars, cafes and parks with dog?
A: Since we live in Baden, I like to go to the 3 Haus in Gumpoldskirchen, the Meierei in Gaaden and the Stockerwirt in Sulz im Wienerwald. We are mainly out and about with Nike in the surrounding vineyards.
Q: Which dog habits do you prefer to keep behind the curtain and what do you insist on?
A: Cleanliness is very important to me. Nike has no dog habits and if she does, it's my own fault!
Q: Do you travel with your dog? Where do you prefer to go? And what should not be missing?
A: Since we have a dog, we fly less and travel mainly by car. In winter we prefer the Wiesergut in Saalbach, but also "pure life" in Styria. In summer we like to be at Lake Zurich, and sometimes we go to Italy for a weekend. We travel exclusively with Nike, and what can't be missing? Food, toys, his favorite blanket, collar and leash, and "Sackl fürs Gackerl".
Q: What do you look for in dog accessories?
A: : Quality is very important to me - natural materials and durability. The color and design of the collars must definitely be consistent.
