A Monumental Puppy Statue Guards the Bilbao Guggenheim

Canines maintain a large stature in Art. The monumental Puppy statue, who guards the door of the Bilboa Guggenheim Museum, proves it.

Puppy is a 40-foot-tall West Highland Terrier, covered with a living flower bed. Not at all realistic, but it shows you art is so important — it has a special license. Artists can stir your soul, without getting arrested.

I am very stirred, quivering all over. I would like to sniff the flowers at the base of that stature, in the back. Puppy is clearly Alpha of the Bilboa Guggenheim. (Who would waste snack allowance on the cost of indoor admission?)

Puppy Bilboa is happy, too. Watch the video and look for his tail wag.

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Graffiti Girl

Graffiti Girl (GG) is curator at JoAnnChateau.com. She's progressive to the core, and easily blown away by serendipity and/or good food. (OK, GG is really JoAnn.) GG's posts signal that news or content from another website is a "must-see" and "must-remember."

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!
