Miss Lizzie was a senior citizen when she modeled for "Sweet Roll." First thing in the morning, she quickly brushed her front feet over her face. She cleaned her face! This composition depicts a still playful Lizzie with her gently curved fourteen year old spine. December 1, 2006, we adopted Miss Sophie, who at age seven, could easily have modeled for "Sweet Roll." She exuberantly cleans her face and rolls every which way, many times a day!

I remain forever grateful to Judge Weldon Long, without whose early coaching in Dachshund Anatomy 101, I could not have created this piece with accuracy so close to the standard. Each "Sweet Roll" is made by hand, one at a time, in Colorado, USA. Each is signed, numbered and includes my mark, Joy Beckner Bronze Sculptor Enjoy!
