In June 1999, my then ten-year-old Lizzie and I met young Tess 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. THEY inspired "So Good to See You."
Since 1996, when I was given Lizzie, I had wanted to do a head study of her. The curved position provided the simplicity necessary to showcase her head. In addition, it fulfilled my desire to bring height to a sculpture of a naturally posed dachshund. 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.
