Wally Wags His Tail




                         Dogs laugh, but they laugh with their tails. Max Eastman

Say hi to Wally, the bucket headed dog. He is made of many household parts, and even has a license plate on his back. His sign says "Wally Wags His Tail", but he would not wag his tail for me, and maybe not for anyone. i think it has been a long time since old Wally has had any care or attention. You can buy him and fix him up for a cool $100.55. I decided to pass. I snapped him with Phil so you could get an idea of his size. I guess old rustbucket dogs never die, they just live in antique malls.

“God will make you the head, not the tail; you’ll always be the top dog, never the bottom dog, as you obediently listen to and diligently keep the commands of God, your God, that I am commanding you today.”

Deuteronomy 28

Well isn't he a clever old dog. I wouldn't pay that much money for him but he is clever. Love that tail even if it isn't wagging

Kinda expensive!! All price and no sale. [like all bark and no bite?]

lol

I bet they'd let him go for just $100.00!!

Best,

Quite something, Ginny! At that price I would have passed as well. :)

Wow---a dog that doesn't bark or eat --or cost me a dime (once I buy him)... ha ha.. Someone certainly is creative.
Hugs,
Betsy

Serious art? Bucket dog.

Rose said...

They must want to keep him at that price! He is cute, though.

I'm thinking he might be a bargain because you wouldn't have to buy dog food or pay for vaccinations. lol! He is a bit long in the tooth (so to speak) tho.

Sometimes I wish people had tails. It would be a lot easier to know how they're feeling. Love this fun piece of artwork. You find the best stuff!

That is quite the ole dog... I love his tail and his bucket head but I think he is a bit out of my price range even if he would look cute out in my garden. Oh well....

That's a strange dog, I prefer the real thing. Ginny, I am surprised you liked my storybof the Lima skulls. Local Culture is always surprising.

Greetings,
Filip

I guess Wally is one old dog that will never kick the bucket!

Wally has a cute nose. He's a might pricey for my pocket book, but cute. Re the farm. I sold it because I was a single lady living in Dallas, about 12 hours away by car, and it was difficult taking care of business long distance. When I moved back, I bought a cute little house in town. Better for me, but miss the freedom to roam through the woods.

What a strange and interesting find. Do not recall seeing one of those.

Wally is definitely a unique dog. It looks like someone came up with a use for the rusty pile of stuff from the back room. At that price it could be awhile before Wally finds a home.
