Default Custom hiking staff wanted

Hi. I would like to give my girlfriend a custom hiking staff with a carving of her (late) dog and maybe a scene from one of her favorite parks. I am naive enough about wood carving that I am considering taking on the challenge myself (I've never carved anything), but I know what happens when I get myself into something of this nature - lots of foul language and an unfinished project. So, do any of you knowledgeable folks have recommendations on how to go about obtaining such an item? My main concerns are having the personality of her dog show in the carving and it being a stick she can use. I don't want it painted - just stained. Thanks!!

Funky, it would help you to get an answer if we knew where you are and what breed of dog you are talking about.

Sure. I'm in NJ (but am regularly in VA, if that matters) and the dog was German Shepard/Malamute mix. I'm trying to figure out a way to get my girlfriend to send me a favorite pic of the dog without raising suspicion!

Almost all parks have medal medallions with a scene and the name of the park, they aren't very expensive...as for the dog carving....there are some great animal carvers...the only one I can think of off hand is Desiree Hajny.....hope this helps. by the way, the medallions are made especially for peoples walking sticks.
