Mosaic for Monday: Fence Climbing Dog


Mosaiced Dog

Credit goes to Rebecca of ArtDogBlog for locating on Flickr and featuring this concrete mosaic sculpture on her blog. I enjoy reading her blog and admire her Art Paw pet portraits.

The sculptor has a batch of photos on Flickr of this amazing piece. Make sure you click on the photo to the right, then the photostream to see the various photos of this sculpture. It's face is wonderful.

It makes me smile, as it reminds me of Cinnamon. Cinnamon was a mixed breed dog of my childhood. He looked very much like a fawn great dane. His family was at witts end because he scaled the fence, climbing out of every boarding facility he stayed at. When they discovered my father's veterinary hospital, which had covered kennel runs, Cinnamon stayed put, and our two families became very close friends as a result.

If I were a wealthy person, I'd commission the artist to make a Cinnamon sculture, which I would give to our friends. I love to see my four dogs climbing our fence...only in similar concrete mosaic scultures. Thankfully they are not fence climbers.
