1:12 scale Boxer

 
This was my neighbor's dog, Chief. I loved him. He disappeared one day. I had gone over there with my camera and had a photo shoot with him. He sat beautifully. I also measured him. This is my hand carved hand painted wood, anatomically correct tribute to him. 
This 1:12 scale carving stands 2 inches (5cm) tall.
shown with ordinary ball point pen

  2. I've been a fan of yours for a long time...so good to see you blogging! The boxer dog is a treasure, he has such a soulful face. I almost expect to see him open his mouth and start barking!

  10. Hi Patty! Thanks, I have lots of neat stuff planned for this blog, but at the moment my internet connection is slower than watching paint dry. Grass grows quicker...
