Though abstract in shape, this little dog radiates the appealing charm of the real thing. He has a sleepy grin on his face, as if just awakened from a long nap. The exaggerated curl of his body evokes the way a dog really sleeps; his tail seems to fan the air in friendly greeting. Will he be surprised at the much-changed world in which he now finds himself? In the manner of most canines, he will no doubt adapt easily, happy as long as he has human companionship.
