Sending Out an SOS: Hunting Dog Garden Statues
Today's post is a bit of a call for assistance — in the form of, "we've looked everywhere and can't seem to uncover where a pair of these hunting dog statues can be found." Alas, in our fruitless hunt we're putting out a collective call (in our best Police voices) for your knowledge on all things dog statue related...
Then one morning Tim noticed they went up for sale on our Nextdoor social app for our neighborhood. It was at that point we realized we'd love a pair to either stand guard at our front entry, or keep watch over the back garden. Unfortunately, we were too late — the pair from our neighborhood had already been claimed, never to be seen again.
Since then, we've exhausted every combination of searches we can muster both online, at local garden centers and salvage yards. While image searches have returned exactly what we're looking for, we've had zero luck finding them available for purchase outside of past-due auctions. Perhaps we'll stumble across a friendly set in our future adventures, yet can't help but think we're just missing a source.
With that, do you or anyone you know hold the key for where to find these dog statues? And should you stumble across one or a pair in your own adventures, will you kindly keep an eye out for us?
