Joshua

This Tri colored Collie is a copy of a dog I knew very well. I actually owned Joshua's sister. Joshua is a beautiful example of a Rough coated Collie. His father was United States and Canadian champion. Joshua himself never entered the show ring. He lived his life out as a pampered pet. He loved to escape and run for miles many times being returned from great distances.  One of those easy to look at and hard to live with dogs. My sculpture of Joshua is large standing 7 inches tall. It has been mentioned many time by me how I love paws and hoofs. I think that Joshua has some wonderful paws. Collies have such nice compact pointy paws... I tried to capture this feature.
