||This dog was a labor of love during which I learned that good attention is embarrassing for even younger kids. I showed his piece to explain excellent thick fur texture, which apprently mortified him. He wouldn't talk to me for 1/2 and hour. When he calmed down, he explained what happened, so our interrelationship trust grew tremendously. He is now an extro-verted, and dedicated sculptor, who has come to my classes weekly for over a year. Phew! He sewed the dog bed all by himself at home, and decorated the corners with glitter glue.
