"Lord of the Couch, MW" was inspired by Lena Leonardsson, who commissioned me to sculpt her dapper, departed Wokie.
Judge Weldon Long, my long time dachshund anatomy mentor, commented on what great feet "Lord" has and how well I had groomed him. Weldon exclaimed, "I could take that dog into a (show) ring and get a 5-point major on him today! Of course, we'll never know how he moves." I miss Weldon who passed away in September 2007.
When our smooth boy, Edgar, acted as if he owned our couch, Wokie in clay, became "Lord of the Couch” MW. After my husband Brian named it, I learned the title was quite appropriate. When Wokie wasn't busy hunting rabbits, cornering woodchucks, or doing his Wokie-doodle dance, he was a real couch man. He spent a lot of time perched on top of the back of the couch. Imagine and enjoy.
Each "Lord of the Couch” MW is hand made, one at a time in Colorado. Each is signed, numbered and includes my mark, . Enjoy!
