Can you believe that someone thought to roll out a statue of me and three of my doggie clients to be viewed by everyone in Manchester? I wish the creators of this masterpiece had contacted me but I assume they wish to remain anonymous because, after all, if word got around, their privacy would be at stake. Who knows? Maybe they were crouching beneath their windows, watching me aim my camera at their unique snow menagerie, hoping I will blog about it.
On a more serious note, the “statues” reminded me of the playful wooden sculptures of a young man and his dogs just outside of Stephen Huneck’s Dog Chapel. The Dog Chapel is located in St. Johnsbury, VT, a chapel adorned with stained glass windows, wooden pews, Stephen Huneck’s paintings, and walls covered with tributes to deceased dogs. The tributes are so touching that it’s little wonder why there are tissues thoughtfully placed at each pew. For further information about the artist and author please visit http://www.dogmt.com/.
