Time Capsule

To Be Open In 100 years

"Tiny" the Chihuahua:
Ty Beanie Babies were a major collectible fad of the late 20th Century that continued into the early 21st. These inexpensive stuffed animals were also an addiction to some.
Many old photos of "Brite Star Chihuahuas" can be found with Beanie Baby critters as accessories. Was at some point the photographer addicted to collecting these toys? Or were they merely props for her photography?

"Chipper":
a good example of an early 21st Century, Long Coat Chihuahua.
This "Brite Star Chihuahua" contributed greatly to the Dog Show Breeding World and is undoubtedly behind many 22nd Century Chihuahuas. Other photographs of this dog can be found in books about Chihuahuas during his day. He was a 8th Generation Homebred for the photographer and went on to sire future generations of Brite Stars.
Has the Breed changed much the hundred years between 2004 and 2104?

A "Brite Star Creation":
a very early example of a sculpture by EBickel. This was one of the artist's very first pieces (created in the later 20th Century)that remained with her throughout her life.
Although her Sculptures consisted of all Breeds of Dogs, creating Chihuahua pieces always remained this artist's favorites.
