Airedale Terrier Dog Statue

I'm sad to report, but the statue is gone.

Large Homemade Dog Statue

There is a large cement poodle on the roadside about a mile West of Harvey the Rabbit on TV Highway.

[Jody Day, 07/23/2009]

It's actually an Airedale terrier, and it advertises a doggie daycare business across the street. The dog appears to be made of tar paper and styrofoam packing noodles, and sits on a weathered platform held down with sandbags. Best of all, its mouth is hinged to flap!
