This was inspired by a cartoon I saw a few years back in the Sunday Comics section. I stuck it on my bulletin board and finally got around to carving it. As usual, I modeled this in clay to get some of the details all worked out. My wife had a Great Dane when we first met, but he was a lot bigger than this guy! Thanks for looking!

Haha, that is so funny! That poor dog. One day if I live long enough, I might get close to this level. Maybe in my next life. Beautiful!

another winner mike,the expression on the dogs face tells the story.they say a picture is worth a thousand words,i think your carvings do too.
