Anyone who lives in the seacoast area and has driven down 495 would immediately recognize these dogs. There's a 16' version of one on the side of the road in Haverhill, MA. These dogs on display are half that size at 8' tall.
We thought this was pretty funny : )
The Big Dog Show is on a 6 city tour. Previously in Haverhill, MA, Dale Rogers and his dogs left Portsmouth on the 19th and can now be found in Ogunquit, ME through August 25. From there he's onto Newburyport, MA, Beverly, MA, and finally Lowell, MA.
In this photo Dale unbolting one of the dogs from the ground in preparation to move it. To avoid ruining the grass, due to the heat, he moved all twenty (20!!!) of dogs twice a day. When I took these photos it wasn't even noon time yet and it was almost 90 degree's. The humidity was coming on strong too. This is a man who is passionate about his dogs (and his work)!
If you get the chance and you're in the area, stop by and visit him! Dale is a very nice guy who will tell you all you ever wanted to know about these incredible creations. If your not from the area, check out his website:
