The Dog Days of Summer - Part II


Bird Dog Sculpture of Cast Brass Finished with a Verdigris Bronze Patina (LEO Design)


We are counting-down the last of the "Dog Days of Summer"—a forty day period scheduled to end on 11 August.  To commemorate these waning days of Summer, we'd like to share some of our favorite "canines" from the LEO Design collection.  Consider sending one as a gift to your favorite dog lover.

"Man's Best Friend" is certainly apt—to anyone who has had and loved a dog.  This sculpted bird dog—standing quietly attentive—should remind any sportsman of a favorite hunting companion.  He's cast in brass and finished with a rusticated verdigris bronze patina.  He'll stand loyally on your desk or bedside table—awaiting the signal to fetch your game.  Click on the photo above to learn more about him.

More Dog Day items to come, tomorrow and over the following days.
