Woman Makes Sculpture Of Daughter’s Dog

April Livingston | April 28th, 2019

A dog named Jimmy is a hound mix that just turned nineteen years old. He’s had such a long and eventful life that something special needed to be done for his birthday. That’s when the mom of his owner, Avigayil Spero, decided to create an unforgettable homage to the sweet dog. Avigayil’s mom recently retired and she had some extra time on her hands so she started taking art classes. It was in one of those classes that she decided to create a special sculpture that looked just like her daughter’s dog. When she gave the sculpture to her daughter she first felt horror, and then quickly shifted to humor.

Avigayil first found her dog Jimmy when he was only a month old, trying to survive the streets of Jerusalem. She had been through a lot in her life too, and so they were perfect for one another. Avigayil bonded with Jimmy quickly, as she was recovering from injuries she sustained from a terrorist attack in Jerusalem. They have traveled together since then, moving from Jerusalem to Chicago and New Orleans before returning to Jerusalem. She and Jimmy have been through so much together that she has seen many sides of him—but never the side her mother created with that sculpture. When she received it from her mom, Avigayil posted a photo of it to Facebook saying, “Bless her soul and he’s so frigg’n creepy!”

The post quickly went viral and some people were creeped out by the creation while others said they wanted her mother to create a sculpture of their dog. Regardless of anyone’s feelings about the sculpture one thing is certain: her mother’s heart was in the right place when she made the ceramic dog. Avigayil loves Jimmy very much, and she sometimes takes the sculpture on adventures. She recently got a tattoo of her sweet pup, too. Jimmy may be old, but it’s obvious he is very much loved!
