Pretty Please!


Danish Modern Stoneware "Begging Terrier" by Knud Kyhn for Royal Copenhagen (LEO Design)


This little ceramic pup is begging, "Pretty Please!"  He knows that there will be a presidential inauguration just two months from today!  Frozen in anticipation, he's waiting to bark with glee when his candidate sails-through.   But expect a howl if his vote is overturned.

This little terrier was modeled by Danish sculptor Knud Kyhn for Royal Copenhagen.  This pup, bearing a date mark of 1980, was designed years earlier.  Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
