Labrador Retriever
Burlington, WA
Labrador Retriever [gone]
Spokane, WA
This Labrador Retriever in Burlington has been owned by the Country Store since around 2013. It was originally located at the Aslin-Finch Feed Store in Spokane, WA which the Country Store bought. The statue is nicknamed Aslin. It is moved around to the company's 13 stores for their Pet-A-Palooza sales events from Spring until Fall.

The Labrador Retriever in Spokane was installed at this Country Store when these photos were taken in 2016. By 2017, he seemed to be gone. It might be moved around to other stores.

Phoenix, AZ
This Dog is clearly made from the same fiberglass mold as the Labrador Retriever statues shown above. However, he is painted to look more like a Pointer. The statue has stood in front of the Doggie District Pet Resort since at least 2016. [map]

Labrador Retriever and Bulldog
Billings, OK
Labrador Retriever and Bulldog
Yukon, OK
These Labrador Retriever and Bulldog statues in Billings were installed around 2017 at the Cimarron Travel Plaza which features a Phillips 66 gas station, truck stop, and dog park. I believe these statues and the Labrador Retrievers shown above were produced by FAST Fiberglass. [map]

The same pair of statues was installed at the Phillips 66 in Yukon around 2016. [map]

If anyone knows of any other locations with these statues, I'd love to hear from you.

George Tirebiter
Los Angeles, CA
George Tirebiter was a USC mascot in the 1940s. He was a mutt that wandered onto campus. His name came from his habit of chasing cars and biting their tires. He was taken to football games and led the school's marching band onto the field wearing sweaters and funny hats. After the dog died in 1950, a successor, George Tirebiter II, was found.

This bronze statue of the George Tirebiter entitled "Mascot/Fan" was created in 2006 by Michael Davis. It depicts George Tirebiter II. For more, see this website.

Brownsville, TX
Dog Bench
Davis, CA
This bronze Bloodhound sculpture is located at St. Joseph Academy where the sports teams are known as the Fighting Bloodhounds. I don't know the artist or when it was installed.

The bronze Dog Bench sculpture was created by Roy De Forest in 2000. It is on loan to the Shields Library at UC Davis where it is installed. De Forest taught at UC Davis from 1965-1992.

Portland, OR
Washburn, ND
Seaman was the Newfoundland dog of Captain Meriwether Lewis. The dog accompanied Lewis & Clark on their expedition. This life-sized, bronze statue in Portland was installed at the Pamplin Sports Center at Lewis and Clark College in 2010. The sculpture was created by Georgia Gerber. The dog is the college's mascot. It is nicknamed "Pio." The college's sports teams are named the Pioneers. For more, see this website.

The Seaman sculpture in Washburn was installed in 2006 at the Seaman Overlook near the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center. The steel sculpture is six feet tall and was created by Tom Neary. [map]
