Dog Days of Summer

Puppies! I recently got a new puppy…which inspired me to create a litter of ceramic ones that don’t teethe on my arm, pee on the rug, chew¬†up my shoes, or wake me up in the middle of the night. I had great fun making these in all sizes and colors not found in the puppy world. For me, a dog is all about the nose – the big, wet, cold black nose that comes at you before everything else…so my dogs have prominent noses that are probably too big for their heads – but the heads are too big for the bodies, so I guess it all balances out. As with my sheep and cows, once the eyes are on, they take on a personality of their own and I can find an appropriate name for each. dog days of summerThe small ones are about 4 inches high and the largest is about 12″ high. Next I think I’ll make some sitting and laying down (two things my puppy is good at – except when you tell him to).
