"So Good to See You" was inspired by two beauties, Lizzie and Tess. My then ten-year-old Lizzie and I met young Tess in June 1999, at the Dachshund Club of America National Field Trial. Tess looked up from a tightly curled position, as if to greet a friend. It was magic! For the first time I memorized a pose -- the glorious curve following the left side of her ribcage to her slim waist and hips left an indelible impression on me. My husband, Brian, inspired the title. He always told Lizzie, "It's so good to see you," about ten times when he returned from a trip.
This longhaired version is something I've always wanted to make because I thought it would be pretty. I still think so and hope you do, too!
Each is made by hand, one at a time in the USA. Each is signed and numbered and each includes my mark, .
