    I love this bulldog! I only recently stumbled upon this website and love it. I was inspired enough to whip up some paper mache clay and make my own paper mache dog. I will say that, in my impatience to create, I didn’t use cardboard patterns like you suggest, and as a result the legs are disproportionately large, and look like things I just stuck to the sides of the body (which I did). Also, I used semi gloss polyurethane (it’s what I had on hand) to seal it, which is way too shiny Lessons learned, and I hope to get better with my future animals. Thank you Jonni for sharing your expertise!

    Your bulldog is wonderful just like all of your work. Your reference to the dog of your youth, and it being a very long time ago, makes one nostalgic for days past. But us “older timers” must remember that every day is a gift, and brings us one day closer to getting better, as is widely evidenced by you and your work. Yours, Joanne

    As always, amazed at your lovely work. The scatch you did at 10 yrs old of your ole faithful pooch is incredable. I don’t know many 10 yr olds who could draw that well. A true artist in the making “way back when”. Thank you again! Looking forward in seeing more.

    Still cold in Sweden…. Wishing for some of that OR heat!!!!

    I function with these dogs and as far as animal behavior goes, I am a solid believer in nurture and training. I have met Jack Russell Terriers that I wouldn’t go close to again, but have for no reason had a poor expertise with an American Staffordshire Terrier. If you’re talking about their owners- nicely, which is a distinct story. Humans are creatures as well, and we tend to each have our unique strategies about “moral concepts”.

    Very nice sculpture. I enjoy the way you cature expression. One note though, as a American Pit Bull Terrier aficianado I have to coment. The American Bulldog is a breed of its own and is not another term for Pit Bull.

    He’s adorable! I’m a fan of the “bully breeds” (one is snoring at my feet now), and I instantly recognized that expression and stance even before you finished him. My three year old just walked up to the computer and said “Look Mommy, it’s Medic!” (thats the snorer’s name). Well done, he’s definately the all American Dog! I wish more people appreciated these guys.
