Romantic Era Doll with Bichon Frise
I made this little tribute piece as a celebration of Albie's speedy recovery (see my blog for story - link in profile). The little stuffed Bichon Frise is actually Albie! A photo taken 15 years ago when he was a show dog and belonged to his previous owner (who many of you know didn't want him anymore as soon as he got "too old" to breed.) Luckily, I was in the right place and the right time and rescued him at age 11. He is the most loving and affectionate dog I've ever known. I also know that HE KNOWS that his Mama took really good care of him during those dark days. He just can't stop giving me doggie kisses!
