Since June 22nd will be a year since I first revealed the Human Baby Larvae to the world, it’s time to celebrate my favorite worm child by sharing a constraction scale version of larvae’s best friend: Pumpkin Dog!
A little backstory:
Pumpkin Dog was once a living dog with a happy life and a loving owner. Eventually, that owner died and was buried in the graveyard. The poor dog lived in that graveyard for years, sleeping by her person’s grave.
Attempting to fill her stomach, she found an old Halloween pumpkin and stuck her head in to eat what was left of the pulp. Her head got stuck and she starved, and then died. All the meat fell off her bones and the pumpkin shriveled up around her head. After that, she spent centuries wandering the graveyard, digging holes and running into gravestones because she couldn’t see.
Eventually the local population named her Pumpkin Dog, because nobody who remembered her was alive anymore. Still later, that community dried up, and Pumpkin Dog was the only creature around until HBL roamed through the area. He befriended her and stayed with her for a few weeks, reminding her what it was like to not be alone.
When it was time for HBL to move on, Pumpkin Dog elected to follow him, finally content to let her old master rest in peace. She’s still dead, but she’s no longer a sad, haunting presence. Pumpkin Dog lost her tail a long time ago, but if she still had it, it would never stop wagging.

The Pumpkin Dog minifigure was the first iteration of the character. I found her in a miscellaneous part lot I got online, and a few seconds of thoughtless imagination gave her an identity. Over time, the character grew with the rest of them, and quickly became one of my favorites (even though I haven’t published much about her yet).
Anything I make that’s related to this little world will end up in this topic moving forward. Enjoy the doggy
