Arf Vader!!!

My wife has been at me to buy a dachshund. I really didn't want a dog digging up yard and leaving little piles around so I built her this. His working name as I was building and talking to him was Fritz but after I welded on his ears he became Arf Vader. She still hasn't seen the humor in it and I'm still in the dog house.

43" from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail.

And I was wrong about not leaving piles in the yard. Every time he lifts his exhaust flap he leaves behind a little pile of scrap metal.

I made this years ago but I thought today would be a good day to drag him out.

Happy Halloween!!

Hope those of you that were in the path of Sandy are safe and those of you blanketed in snowed are warm.

YOU are too funny tinfoil! LOVE Arf Vader and I especially like the "piles" he leaves around. At least he's being helpful with other creations.

A classic ...just like the movie! Arf Vader ...yes, his face (after adding those ears as you say) fits ...definitely from 'the Dark Side!' Hope you have a pooper scooper nearby! LOL! TFS, tinfoil! Jeanne S.
