Becky Jo, Frank, the secret pug teapot

(Frank, a famous pug)
My pal Becky Jo, although herself a potter, is like
"GARY! My dad raises pugs, can you try to make a pug teapot???" and I am like
"Becky Jo, I can make beagles, I can make pigs, lemme think about it..." and I say
"AH HA! Make a beagle, shove the nose IN, then piglet for lower body, HUZZAH!"
and so I make the little thing you see me holding below and I like it and keep it and then today make a teapot for her. When it is fired there will be a cane handle across the top.
