"The comment I get most about the "Ball boys" is "Isn't that just like a dachshund!" The first study for "Life's a Ball!" is titled "On the Ball." This is the first standing dog I modeled in wax. It is of Edgar as a 9 to 12 month old puppy. 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." Edgar is a happy, outgoing boy. He inspired the name." - Joy Kroeger Beckner
