Last night I accidentally broke my favourite mug - One I bought years and years ago in Sainsbury's. I'm reaching out to everyone on HUKD (I know how fantastic you are at finding flamedeers, deals etc) in the desperate hope that you might help me find/have an exact replacement.
The mug is from the Sainsbury's at Home range and is called "Dog Dog Dog". The mug is white with 3 identical cartoon standing dogs around the outside (the middle one is an upside down version)
The dogs are black outline drawings with great big black noses and with a brown oval patch over their right eye. Underneath each drawing is the word DOG. They did a CAT version as well if that helps jog any memories. Please see my profile pic for a (very small) photo of the mug (sorry it's so small).
If anyone can help or make suggestions as to how I can find another one - anything at all! ! would be more grateful - it would make my Christmas!
Thank you all, in advance x

Do you have a picture of the mug you are trying to find? (That may make it a bit easier for people to be able to visualise what it is you are looking for - they may even have one themselves?)

Other than that, it may be that you could ask Sainsbury's themselves, to see where or who they have sent their excess stock to, for them to sell.... They may know when they started and stopped production of the mug or similar....

Just a thought....

My current profile pic is my ex-mug - the "ask" page doesn't let you post pics so I altered my profile to try and assist any HDUKers. I've just sent an email to Sainsbury's - thank you for that suggestion <3 I'm hoping someone out there has one of these mugs sitting, unused in the back of a cupboard or maybe even spot one sitting in a charity shop. It's going to be a really long, long shot but I have my fingers crossed!
Thank you for your ideas and words of advice - I really appreciate it x

I couldn't track another down online though in the few minutes I've searched. Worth tweeting Sainsburys too with the image asking for help.
EDIT: Have you got a pic with the other 2 dogs or are they identical to that one?
EDIT 2: Oh you have said already they are identical :)

You can search by image on Google, which is what I did with your photo. I couldn't find another mug like your image. A long shot is to take another photo of the mug in a different position, perhaps with the upside down dog image - and to search via google images again. Preferably without your hand in the photo at all although I appreciate it's tricky if it's broken :p That's if you haven't binned it already.
It is a very long shot, but depends how desperate you are! Others will probably have better ideas.

Another great idea!
I will tape the cup together and try again
I won't ever bin it - I genuinely LOVED that cup. Kind of reminds me of my old dog whom I lost a few years back :(
Currently in bits in a box of remembrance.

Well I just searched 5,604 different 'dog mug' searches on eBay, and nothing I'm afraid.

Have you thought about copying/photographing the dogs on the mug, creating a picture and having a mug printed online ?

Why not, it's only fun and not meant to be rude. I love that one as it's probably my life.

I think if I can't get hold of an original, this may be the path I have to go down.
It's just the whole mug was wonderful - not just the dogs
The shape, the size - it was just perfect!

I know the problem, I have a Bang on the Door "Hippo" mug that I love to drink from. Found another on EBay but they want about £20 for it.
