Angel Dog Statue | Why Our Beloved Canines Are Idolized In Stone

Why dogs are idolized in stone?

Dogs of all shapes & sizes are regarded as man's best friend,faithful companions,family guardians to loving owners just about anyone who warms up to them embracing them as one of their own.

Our beloved canine companions help bridge the relationship gap between man and beast in so many ways you can't even imagine without being a dog owner yourself.

Think about it, who wakes you up every morning with a bark,who goes out of his way to bring the newspaper & slippers for you,who watches over your house while your off to work or go on a vacation? Now if your response to any one of my questions was your Husband/Wife then your dog then I must say Shame on you! :)

Jokes aside, I've bared witness to the heroic feats our canine's perform as police dogs monitoring with highly sensitive snouts sniffing out from at times a mile away illegal contraband on airlines or on border patrol to saving a small child's life from an assailant either man or animal alike.

For those of you that are proud dog owners,When you first received your canine companion through purchase, adoption or found as a stray did it ever occur to you the untold potential this particular dog would bring to your life?

No, right the thought never occurred to me either when I had my first furry companion looking at my German Shepperd girl today I still remember fondly the memories I have training her,walking her in the park,and even as my protector.

So when our fellow canines inevitably pass on to greener pastures in the sky, the memories of the good times we shared with will always be there in our minds and in our hearts. To help us remember our companions loving presence people will at times resort to stuffing their dogs through a means called Taxidermy.

Now a humane way to remember our pet dogs that I prefer, to be immortalized in stone perched around the house as a memento or reminder of the wonderful companion you had to part with.

Upon looking at the stone figurine it just helps to bring an image to mind that there is a place around your garden or house where your family has the blessing of a watchful dog guardian looking over your shoulder to help ease your mind. Next time you see your animal dog friend treat them right they are living breathing companions we can't live without once they enter our lives.

Lovely article Jacob... I have seldom been without a dog as a pet my whole life and each and everyone has been special... they have all had a unique way of doing things and bonding with me... and each one has a special memory as per the one article I wrote on SA.. yet I can't think that anyone would want their pet stuff for memory sake.. and then have this dead memory standing in their house... different strokes for different folks, comes to mind...

Nice article Jacob, well written. I like your lens as well. I was sad to see that there were no figurines of the Old English Mastiff. I would get one if there were even though I don't have a garden, I do however have the best Old English Mastiff a friend could ever have.
