Faithful Watch Dog

Postby Ceropegia » Sun Apr 24, 2016 12:44 am

In 2004, I found this stuffed dog in the drive up to the site where my house was being built. The place I found it is in the middle of the woods acres away from any other dwelling. How it got there is a mystery. I placed in on a rock facing the driveway. That was 12 years ago. It is still there today faithfully keeping watch on the driveway.

Looks like mother nature is trying to claim him.

There are no banal subjects in photography, but an infinite number of banal ways to illustrate them.

Thanks, I haven't checked on it yet this year - may have difficulty finding it, mother nature is trying very hard to obliterate it..

I love that you can still see his snout, eye (barely) and ear. (OK)

I thought it was a real dog at first and wondered what this dog had gotten into. What an amusing story and an incredible eye to see it! S-
