*lol* inked... yes, it's a wolf. (don't feel bad, took my mom a while to see it to).
And thanks Silvertongue
I hate to say it, but I kinda got the idea from *gasp!* Martha Stewart... she had a catterpillar thing on her website last year... and I thought, why not a snake? (made a little pumpkin village last year though). And, my b/f loaned me his woodcarving tools, so that helped a lot! (regular kitchen knives suck for pumpkin carving!)
