Distant War Cries - Sculpting the Dog Starts Today
Today I started the Dog.
I've changed my mind on doing a Border Collie. They were very limited in their introduction to North America... They were introduced in Canada around 1860. In the US not until about 1880s and 1900 I found out. This is an 1870s period piece. I found out the true west dog was the Carolina Dog.. the Dingo as it's called today. It came with the migration over the land bridge from Siberia.. and was even drawn on rocks by Native Americans. So I've decided to do that breed.. They ranged in height from 17 to 24 inches in height.. So I'm fine with this one.. In the movie Old Yeller.. that was a Carolina Dog.
