Default My German Shepherd whistle

The objective in my ceramics class last semester was to make a working whistle. I made a German Shepherd whistle. It looks deformed, but let me tell you, it was very difficult to form. I had to make my own whistle out of clay as well. The GSD is built around the whistle, the mouth piece is protruding from under the tail (a bit humorous, I suppose).
This photo was taken a while ago, I am almost finished glazing it now. It's supposed to be a "rich" bi-color. I'll post a photo after it's been fired.

The sad part is that I didn't think about how you have to put your mouth on the dog's anus.....
I think I'll just put it up somewhere and not use it. Lol

Thank you for the comments. I'll try to put my insecurities aside and show my hard work off.

It looks amazing! Don't hide it! I'd kill for even an ounce of that sort of talent.
