Pet Rock

I am really excited about a gift I got for my boyfriend for Xmas and I thought I would share.

(BTW - I feel pretty chatty, so I hope ya'll don't mind some of my lengthy posts, and pics. )

There is a long story behind this, but I'll spare you all from having to read all the details. Bottom line is, my boyfriend LOVES this dog. They are made for each other!! Junior and my boyfriend were separated for a few months and were recently reunited and so this rock is such a fitting gift for my BF. Its also fitting for Junior because he has a bizarre fascination with rocks.

Finished product.

It was just shipped today and I am very anxious to see it!

P.S. His tail is in his mouth because he loves to chase it. And I guess I forgot to explain whats up with his muzzle. When he was a puppy he got very sick (juvenile cellulitis & staph infection) and his face was scarred. So there is no hair on the black spots.

I wish I could paint like this! I actually had it made by a woman in California.

At first I thought, wow. A rock for a gift? But when I read what you wrote and scrolled down and saw what it turned out like!! OMG!! I love it!! I want one of Dakota!!

Do you mind me asking how much you paid for it and if this woman does mail orders? LOL Serious!

I got it from a lady in California, so she definitely does mail orders. Her price list is on her website - the price depends on the size of the rock and only charges the actual cost for shipping, which was a pretty decent price.
