Dog days of February?!
Pictures from last week, the cutest 3D metal dog ever, also the best behaved. It took a number of days to configure all the most perfect parts for each limb and hours of decision on placement of each, limb, ears, tail etc. I initially wanted to have only two of it's feet on the ground but could not come up with a suitable position to make it stable enough. I wanted him to be a believable 'dog' without being an exact breed. His ball is an old fishing weight, his carrier cage is an old biscuit tin with an antique metal and leather suitcase handle. He even has some moving parts, this is a one of a kind puppy!
