We’re normally partial to household pets that greet us at the door with a wag and a lick. But recently, we’ve transferred our affections to something a bit harder to get. With a pedigree that rivals any Fifi-come-lately at Westminster Kennel Club, this life-sized Nymphenburg porcelain objet triggers the kind of human longing previously associated with Dr. Pavlov’s bell. Poodle $5,940, leather pillow, $910, at Grange Hall.
