My Favorite Room: Children’s author Linda Haffey wasn’t too lazy when it came to decorating her country house in Portadown

One of the most positive aspects of my two years in virtual solitude was the love of animals we discovered in ourselves, especially the love of dogs. Suddenly everyone was getting Labradors, Boxers, and Poodles but also Labradoodles, Cockapoos, and Cavachons, and we were stumbling upon breeds in the garden we barely knew existed.

Author Linda Huffy and her family were no different in wanting a dog, and she, husband John, and daughters Olivia Rose and Kate found Bonnie, a pitcher—a cross between a pug and Jack Russell—and welcomed her into their adorable Portadown home, the Armagh Company. “We’ve always loved animals. We have goats, ducks and chickens in the backfield but haven’t had a dog in a while since the last one died. Then during lockdown my girls begged and begged to find Bonnie in Armagh. It was £100, a little bargaining dog downstairs. It was The first girl out of the trash and we fell in love with her.”
