Newfoundland - Wendall leads his pack of explorers through uncharted waters to find new land. His boat doesn't have a dinghy - he prefers a good swim to shore.

About the Artist - Laura Bergsma was born with an innate appreciation and love for all creatures great and small. If she could have had the pet of her dreams she would have chosen a giraffe, a chimpanzee, or a dolphin. After three years of pleading, her parents allowed her to have a realistic pet of her dreams: a dog.
The concepts behind her work are based on puns, but there is a deeper theme. Each dog is living out what it was bred to do. Each dog is living out what it was bred to do. The dogs look joyful or serene as they are engaged at doing what comes most naturally to them.
