Here is the first stage of gluing up the dog. I am beginning with the back part of the dog and will finish that first so I can match the head with it. The idea is to have Oberon, the Wonderdog, going in to the portal and then turning back to see if perhaps you want to come as well. Or maybe he is just saying goodbye.I am not sure exactly how much of the front part of the dog I will have coming back out. I do love his face. To me it is aesthetically perfect and I hope I can do it justice in my carving.
