Puppet! It's a puppet. I was expecting to see an enormous dog-eagle hybrid.

Now I want to see a golden eagle retriever. But this is very cool!

Mod note: Fixed the typo! (Pupper > Puppet)

Oh geez! I saw that puppet. I was with my family and a gaggle of my kids’ friends in that park you see at the end of the video. Wish I’d known it was the work of a MeFite. I’ll confirm that it’s just as impressive in person as it is in the video.

Wow! The amount of work and problem solving that went into that is astounding. Great performance! (I was also agog and jealous of that workshop!)

Thanks everyone! We are just coming up on one year with the workskop, and it has really made things easier than working form my basement and Daniel's garage. This is our third large scale puppet design, after Tufti the Troll and the flamingo twins Magnus and Petur. But we have several more in the works for a secret project in 2024!
