I have a fondness for these designs that has grown from my first glimpse years ago in England. We all think of and treat our dogs as human so here we get the chance to see them that way. A fantasy come true.
As Robert Harrop says:
It's anthropomorphic engineering; its what we do better than anyone else in the dog figurine world. The personification of the many and varied breeds of dog in the world is our business. We like to think that our research of the human subjects and our knowledge of the chosen breed of dog give us the magical 'double take'.
We endeavour with every project to cause whimsicalconfusion, so that our morph is a unique character: neither dog nor man, but a truly convincing member of the 'Doggie People' population.
