A little dog carving

I ran across a little carved dog online and thought I’d duplicate it.  After I’d finished and posted it on the woodcarving forum, I discovered that the original pattern came from Larry Green’s book, First Projects for Woodcarvers.  My little dog didn’t turn out exactly like the one I saw, or like the one in the book.  But it’s close.  Next time I’ll do a little better job on the eyes and ears.

The little dog is about two inches tall, two inches deep, and one inch wide.
