In the late 90s, when Brian and I were showing Edgar, Ch. Retdachs Brwneyed Hansomboy, Anne Allen Crocket, came to the Dachshund Club of St. Louis shows. We always enjoyed being around Anne and Brian helped her get her dogs and crates from her car into the show site. Shortly, too shortly, before her death in June 2004, Anne asked me about making a piece of her black & tan girl Boo, with pups. I had no idea Anne was so sick, or, I’d have started immediately. Although I have yet to see or hold a newborn puppy, I worked from perfect reference materials, the many pictures that breeders had sent me to show off their new pups! Anne suggested the title. “Deli’s Open” is dedicated to Anne Allen Crockett and all the responsible breeders who provide us with loving companions. Cheers to those who breed for good temperament and beautiful conformation!

"Deli’s Open" is made entirely by hand in Colorado, USA. Each is signed, numbered and includes my mark, Joy Beckner Bronze Sculptor
