"The sculpture "Life's a Ball" was inspired by my standard, smooth dachshund, Ch. Retdachs Brwneyed Hansomboy AKA Edgar Allen Nose or J. Edgar Pooter! As a puppy, Edgar often played with his Buster Cube™. He would twist and turn his body while trying to wrestle food out of this toy. His contortions, strength, and determination fascinated me. The cube evolved into a ball, "On the Ball." The pup evolved into a "man" and the ball into a bigger ball. Weldon Long, my dachshund anatomy mentor, nicknamed the dog in the sculpture Herky for Hercules, because he is so big and strong! Edgar is a happy, outgoing boy. He inspired the name." - Joy Kroeger Beckner
