my doxie treasures: log dog

In our seemingly vast collection of doxie treasures, the vintage and the handmade stuff speaks to me most. Today, a look at Log Dog, a wooden piece created from pictures I had provided of Kep and Padua and carved by the fabulous Gay Foltz, a folk artist in residence at a gallery in which I've placed some things in the past. And yes, as you might guess, log dog's body is indeed a log.

Log Dog normally protects those who come to sit a spell in the library upstairs, standing at attention on high on a bookshelf out of harm's way, which is why tiny chumley wasn't aware of Log Dog's existence til it came time to take pictures in a much sunnier part of the house.

A few sniffs, just to make sure this thing wasn't a threat, and buddies did these two become. "Let's put out another bowl of food for him, ok?", Baxter must have certainly hoped. "If he doesn't eat it all, I certainly can help him!"
