    Hi guys-- I haven't been on here much since I lost my boy, my heart, Mateo last December. But I do look in every now and then to see photos of my favorite breed :))), and to keep up with what is happening with those I have gotten to know a bit (and their dogs.)

    I thought I would share a couple of photos of a commissioned sculpture I have completed-- this is the finished clay; I will proceed onto molding and casting soon.

    A beautiful Dogue, that I have met personally-- and who also has won BOB, Westminster, 2016.

    Oh, it is so beautiful, Suanne! I can never get over how very talented you are. The owner must be over the moon with this tribute to their beloved pet. I wish...Wish...WISH, I could afford to have you sculpt my beautiful girl, but, alas...my lottery fairy hasn't arrived yet. Some Day, I hope, I'll be able to put in the call.

    I was going to drop you a line this week, but since you dropped by, let me ask you how things are going in LA.? I'm hoping that the weather and the work has been inspiring. Please fill us in when you have a moment. We all miss you, and, of course, your beautiful, never to be forgotten, Mateo. He will be evergreen in our hearts forever.

    Wow, that's gorgeous! I would love to commission a piece from you too. Someday. Lol.

    It's really good to *see* you. I hope things are going well. I think of you and Mateo often. He touched so many lives.

    That is gorgeous! And it is so good to see you! :)

    Yes I echo the sentiment that it would be wonderful to one day have a commissioned piece from you. <3

    Thank you all very much! I will post a photo after he is molded and cast into a final material.

    Bailey's Mom---LA is fine...but, I'm not loving it here. I don't know what it is, but it just doesn't feel like a final destination for me-- part of it is just the "vibe" of the city, and honestly part of it is the weather-- it's very dry here in the desert, lol. I miss rain, and the seasons...even snow. I am looking into places north of here, maybe even Oregon (I have friends there, so may go for a visit, just to get a feel for the area.) Also, inexpensive housing, and space to work (and eventually have a BIG dog again.) LA is not cheap, although much less expensive than NYC (which I miss a lot...). So, we'll see.

    And I have to say, if I had no need for shelter and food, I would love to be able to create sculptures of all your beautiful dogs for free. :)

    And we would all be blessed beyond blessing, as you were, to be able to kiss their noses again after they have left this plane. These are our heart dogs, and, if my lottery fairy shows up, you will be in the top ten people I'll be calling. I mean, look at that kissy face...it needs to be immortalized.

    I would love to commission you to do one of Hogan , my dad’s boy..... but I have a feeling I would need to be in a higher tax bracket
