Repairing a ceramic dog

December 23, 2019

‘Fido’ came in a broken beast! He was in six large pieces and things didn’t look good for him.

Fido, our name for him not his owner’s, was a large (approx 36″ tall) ceramic dog. He had met with a unfortunate accident.

When he left he was whole again, the scars of his wounds barely showing.

While running around after his repair was never going to be an option – Fido can at least stand guard again looking proud!
