Yard Dog Swing

A large metal dog sculpture has a porch swing attached to its belly! It's a shady place to swing.

[Jan Dunlap, 07/24/2020]

"Yard Dog," 12 feet tall and 20 feet long, was made of corrugated sheet metal by artist Don Kennell in 2011. It was supposed to be temporary at this spot, but apparently it's found a forever home.
