Description:
Statues or memorials of human's best friend, the dog.
Expanded Description:

This waymark category seeks locations of statues that show a dog alone or with a human companion of some kind. Our pets mean so much to us in our lives for so many of us. They are family. Dogs have played some important roles in history as well. We seek out these locations.

To create a new waymark you must find a statue or memorial of a dog. Please post three dimensional statues only, no plaques or markers. A sculpture in an airport that is within the secure area (or any other secured location) would not fit this category as only people with tickets would be able to view the sculpture. The piece must be on permanent display; no temporary locations.

This is a tribute to the original locationless cache, GC922B, Man's Best Friend by Penny & Chaos.

Instructions for Posting a Dog Statues Waymark:

We have several requirements for being able to post a waymark to our category. Please note the needed information below.

1. Tell us the story about the statue and the dog. The bulk of the text in the long description must be left black.

2. Post a photo of the statue/memorial itself.

3. You must have visited this waymark yourself to post a waymark in this category. Exact GPS coordinates for the exact location of the statue must be posted.

4. Remember, it must be a 3D sculpture/memorial. No markers or plaques.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
When logging waymarks posted to this category, please provide a photo of the statue with you and your GPS to show you have visited the waymark.

German shepherds were often used by the military and served as bomb search dogs. When the troops left Vietnam, the handlers came home without their dogs. Not by choice, but by bureaucracy.
