well i couldnt quite figure out where to put this, so:

This dogs purpose is to guard the door and let no drafts invade  Wink

I modeled him for a friend after his dog (an alpine dachsbracke http://www.answers.com/topic/alpine-dachsbracke , looking rather dachshund similar)

its one meter long and filled with foam. the paws on the door side are fastened with elastic to keep him near the door when opening and closing.

on the door:


full length

paws


in the mean time i fixed the left eye

hope you like it.

This is so adorable!  I've always wanted a weiney dog but now that I have an overly protective cat I don't think thats going to happen.  And with super drafty doors this seems perfect  Grin

Great job!

that's really cool!  and what a great idea to use elastic so you don't have to worry about putting it back near the door

two replies, whoa.

I just sent this to my mom and she called me (We work together so she called from her office which is 5 ft away) to tell me that she is in love with it!!  Can you pretty please post a tutorial for this?

That is SOOOOO CUTE!!! How wise to use that to block the wind! Now, you'll have to watch other animals and CHILDREN!!! That neither of them snatch it away for its cuteness. Glue it to the door. Hehe *joking*!
