Now that I have your attention, here's my newest addition. A very low maintenance, low shedding variety.... I just couldn't resist getting one of these wonderful garden sculptures. I unfortunately can't find the artist's business card to give her credit for this lovely little dog.
We placed it out in the yard soon after I got home. The next time Jimmy was released into the backyard, he ran over to chase off the trespasser and bumped right into it as he expected it to run off! Jimmy only made that mistake once. I am sure he was embarrassed!
**UPDATE** The artist is Martha Cawley. Click here for her website .
