Hi Louise and friends, I just purchased "Tickled" for the Kwanais Dog Park in Mankato, Minnesota. It will be placed on a base of stone from here in Mankato known as Kasota stone. It will be dedicated on April 20,2012. There will be a gathering of my friends as well as my Irish Wolfhound, Maggie's friends.
I purchased this sculpture in loving memory of my husband, Tom, who also loved big dogs . He died in January of this year and the "Tickled" sculpture just seemed appropriate and the dog park a perfect setting.
She will be visible as you drive by on Highway 169 toward Minneapolis. I will see her often in the goofiness of Maggie, as well as our trips to the dog park and trips to parts North.
Thank you for the beautiful sculpture of this dog. It truly is a loving tribute to all dog lovers.

Sorry about Bella. We have had Danes for 25 years, our last girl died in 2008. My husband now has Parkinson's and has difficulty walking and so there may not be another Dane in our future. We send you our sympathy and really understand the bond we develop with our Danes. We have one of your beautiful sculptures in memory of our beloved Danes. Thank you for your art.

My wife and I have two natural ear mantle Danes. Your work captures the breed perfectly and we have a couple of your pieces. Sorry to hear about Bella. I've had Great danes all my adult life and I know how hard it can be to lose them. The picture in the gallery "Rainbow Bridge", took my breath away for a moment.
