Big Wook the Pigeon Carrier

Big Wook, might seem like an odd choice for a name…but I found out that the Airedale’s nick name is the Wookie dog! And it’s also the nick name of my own dog (NOT an Airedale.. he’s a GSD)… Very fitting indeed. 🙂 Carrier pigeons were often used during WWI to transport messages back and forth. These pigeons were then transported/carried themselves by a variety of dogs and horses. During the First Battle of the Marne, pigeons were shown to be the most effective means of getting messages to the French headquarters. (http://armedforcesmuseum.com/carrier-pigeons-used-during-world-war-I/) I chose to sculpt the Airedale because it was a breed I haven’t tackled yet. 🙂
