Dogs have always been part of my life.  I grew up with a funny little beagle named Ben, who was so naughty, he would run out the door, just as we were all leaving for school or work, we would then have to chase him across the park.  I had the most amazing Labrador named Reuben who gave our family so much love, after he passed away,  I joined Labrador Rescue, so we could help find homes for unwanted labradors, through this we adopted Cooper, a black old dog who had been surrendered and Nelson, not a lab, but a very loving boy who had been kept and abused for 3 long years. 

When I make my ceramic dogs, i find it's the placement of the eyes, that brings soul to my dogs.  All of my dogs have also found their forever homes.
