A Special Thanks by Burrs-and-Furs A Special Thanks by Burrs-and-Furs
I just want to thank you all in the taxi community for your kindness toward me. I have no one else to talk about pelts and taxi to in real life so I appreciate having an accepting community on here I can talk to. I think you all are doing a marvelous job preserving the beauty of life and I even thank fellow hobbyist such as myself for sharing their collections with me.

I have learned so much about furbearing animals and pelts from you all. When I first saw taxidermy on here I was appalled because I was a PETA believing noob (but I didn't harass anyone!). Now I have a small collection of my own, but even more important is the friends I've made and the knowledge I've obtained.

I hope you all have a splendid new year and excel in all that you wish. =)

LOL right I love that you can see all his little fluffy paw pads.!

Actually his other paw that got cut off in the pic, the two middle toes are REALLY spread out! It's the weirdest thing! Must have just tanned like that. =)

I also gave him a manicure when I first got him because he kept scratching me itcheh . Cut all his nails, filed the edges, and glossed them thick on the ends. They are nice and smooth now. Foxy Dummy

Lord mighty he is one cute foxie!
one question, if I understand right he is pose-able in his legs and head? I am getting my fox done by Midnightwolfdesigns and he will have pose-able legs! I agree with you that the sprawled out look is not one of my favorites but I also didn't want my first fox to be filled with hard stiff wire. Lol still want to be able to cuddle him!
Anyway adorable fox! He looks like a ball of fun! <3

He has wires running from his head to his "spine" and down to his legs. The wires are very pliable though so he cannot stand, but he's very easy to pose and move. I like it that way, they look realistic but are still cuddly =) I haven't seen her do one with just posable legs, you'll have to get pics!

Okay, that makes sense. The head thing is one problem I have been thinking about with mine cause he won't have any wire "spine". And I haven't seen one with it either so it'll be a surprise to everyone. lol I'll be sure to take LOTS of pictures!

Yayy pictures <333

Not being able to lift its head up shouldn't be a big deal. I only lift up the head on mine for pics, otherwise it just rests in place =)

He is beautiful! :) Is he posable, and able to stand? I am getting mine posable, by midnight wolf designs. Currently my frost is just a floppy soft mount but still just as beautiful! I will enjoy more possibilities to photograph him when he is posable <3

He is posable! He is more like a semi-posable though because he doesn't sit/stand without help (he needs to be propped up on something to do so). However, he can hold up his head and do any lying down position. That was what I was going for at the time though because I didn't want something with very stiff wires, I just wanted something that could sit naturally and hold its head up. (I'm not a huge fan of the sprawled out look regular soft mounts tend to do) Oooo you have a blue frost? Those have such cool fur!

I think you will be happy with MWD's work! I swear I only hear good things about her and I've talked to a few of her customers in the past. I'd love a mount from her one day. Her posables look so real!

I see thanks for getting back to me :) He is beautiful, and it is not a blue he is a silver fox <3 like yours :) I am sure I will be happy with MWD's work, I have heard comments too about how good she is. I would like to get a posable black wolf or timber from her sometime when I get the money here! :)
