"The sculpture "So Good to See You" was inspired by two beauties, Lizzie and Tess. Ten-year-old Lizzie and I met young Tess in June 1999, at the Dachshund Club of America National Field Trial. Tess looked up from a tightly curled position, as if to greet a friend. It was magic. For the first time I memorized a pose -- the glorious curve following the left side of her ribcage to her slim waist and hips left an indelible impression on me. Since 1996, when I was given Lizzie, I wanted to do a head study of her. The curved composition provided the simplicity necessary to showcase her head. In addition, it fulfilled my desire to bring height to a sculpture of a naturally posed dachshund." - Joy Kroeger Beckner
