Live, Laugh, Bark, Howl

First, you can see the process of this plate coming to life by visiting my Live, Laugh, Bark, Howl FaceBook album. Lots more photos there!

Not exactly a commission.

Earlier this year I put the "Mi Casa" plate up for sale, and a dear friend bought it.

Due to carelessness on my part, it broke during shipping! She sent it back to me and I was able to repair it very well.
We both decided that rather than risk sending it again, we would wait till we were visiting and hand -deliver it to her.

Meanwhile, I hung it in the bathroom, figuring it would be safe there.
Not so - it was bumped and fell off the wall, shattering into a billion pieces! So, I'm making a replacement piece for my friend.

She is a consummate dog lover and supporter of rescue.
She's had, to the best of my recollection, four wonderful rescue boxers, and there have been a couple of very special pointy-nosed hounds in her life too. She's also gaga over hockey, and just has a giving, positive, make-the-world-a-better-place spirit.

Taking all that into account, I'm working on this plate for her.

Its currently drying, and then will be treated with a glaze wash like the Cat Plates.

And I'm brimming with more ideas!
