This wily canine is known for his ability to overcome any obstacle set in his path. He shows us that Life is the Ultimate Trickster by accepting situations as they are and by dealing with the unexpected, willingly and eagerly. He teaches us through his mishaps and shortcomings that life is often unpredictable and uncontrollable but through him we see that these unexpected occurrences can be viewed as Opportunities, not Misfortunes. A perfect role model to teach each of us to live in the present moment and wonder in Awe.

He is bundled with beads of Cerrillos Turquoise, branch Mediterranean Coral and hand made Tulcum Heishe as a special offering to the animal spirit that resides in the Fetish.
