Penny the Dog.

Penny the Dog

Vintage billboard of a dog. It was not moving when we were there.

[Jessica Miller, 04/20/2017]

Penny is engineered to be capable of rolling her eyes and wagging her tail, but possibly active only when a game is in progress at the adjacent Birmingham Barons ballpark.

Penny the Dog

Penny was there, but not moving. Maybe they only turn on during game day? In the parking lot at Regions park, above entry gate.
