RUNNING WITH DOGS

Last week I made my first little dog artifacts.

My very first little dog artifact, in faux green soapstone.

Today I have pics of my very first dog pack. I love them so much already! I stayed with a very ancient-looking prototype, with long snout, upright and slightly cocked ears, and a curly tail. The curling tail seems to be the discerning characteristic of a dog versus a wolf or coyote. I could be wrong, but I’m going with it for now.

A whole pack of ancient dogs!

Running with the dogs. For Joanne!

I also have two little otters who are different from their brethren. Their backs arch up. I think they look like they’re doing that thing kittens do, when they arch their backs and hop sideways. And look–see the tiny toes on this one’s feet??

Bouncy otters!

Otter toes!

  6. I’ve been following your blog for well over a year now, and reading your archives. I was planning on purchasing one of your horse necklaces at Sunappee this year, and NOW you go and make dogs, too! I’m conflicted and torn, now! :^) It’s going to be a very tough decision!

  7. Oh, I adore the faux green soapstone!

    Now I know exactly what I will get my teenage neighbor for her birthday – a wonderful prehistoric dog. Myself, I want me some otter toes! Or maybe a dog to remind me of the wolves I saw this summer… Oh no, now I’m in a quandary too!

  8. Photos! Look how GREAT these photos look on your blog, Luann… YAY!

    And I LOVE my prehistoric, no-breed, wild dog! But I also LOVE my horse… no quandaries for me… instead of “either/or” how about “both/and”?

    xo :)
