What's up with the name?

Mad Dogs and Englishmen is a famous song by Noel Coward, who was an English playwright, composer, director, actor and singer, known for his wit, flamboyance, and what Time magazine called 'a sense of personal style, a combination of cheek and chic, pose and poise'.

This is a family owned and operated business... our daughter Madeline (aka Mad) + our doggies (one of which will usually be hanging around the shop to greet guests) + Martin (he's a Brit)... and there you have it- that's how we settled on what we consider to be the perfect name!
