I was up in Confederation Park a couple of times this past weekend, and took shots of this pair of monuments. The one on the left, of course, is the Animals In War monument, the newest military monument in the park. The one on the right is the oldest in the park, honouring veterans of the South African War, or Boer War, from 1899-1902.
When I took this second shot of the dog statue late on Sunday afternoon, I put the camera away. Which was when a bulldog came steamrolling right towards the statue, towing his owners behind, sniffing the statue, and then looking entirely pleased with himself to confirm that no, this was not a real dog. I didn't think of taking the camera back out until after the fact.
