The Melrose Houndstooth harness is named after the small town of Melrose in the Scottish Borders historically in Roxburghshire, which is also the location of Melrose Abbey. It was re-founded in the early 12th century and is one of the most beautiful monastic ruins in Great Britain. It is the site of the heart of the Scottish king Robert the Bruce inspiring the regal composition of the blush tones seen throughout the lavish, plush fabric. The alluring, metallic rosette leatherette ribbing touches on the dusty rose shades delicately repeated in formation accented by the blush pink embroidery. The houndstooth pattern is slightly smaller than the checkered pattern found in the popular monochromatic design giving the look more of a puppy’s tooth adoring appeal for the sweetest of breeds.
