Appreciating Sculptures

Bunny here at the keyboard, writing a bit about our weekend.

Saturday night Mom and Dad had plans to go out for a birthday dinner, so we didn't have time to go away for a hike, but we wanted to do something together for a little bit, so we all loaded up and got in the van.  We went to visit downtown Peoria, near where Mom works.  There are lots of cool sculptures down there and Mom and Dad thought it would be fun to get a closer look at them and take some pictures.

First we visited Harvest and Peace.  These sculptures have been in the city for a long time and have been moved several times.  They are standing in the Becker Plaza at the moment.

Then we went over to visit this antelope looking thing.  It looks pretty neat.  It stands in front of the Peoria Civic Center.  We actually had to wait a little while to pose by this one because several people thought it would be a good idea to take pictures by it.

Finally, we stopped by the giant fish hook.  It's on another side of the Civic Center.  We'd probably have gotten to visit a little more if Mom and Dad hadn't gotten distracted by a couple getting married at the church across the street.  That makes about five weekends in a row that we've come across a wedding while we've been out and about!

After all that sightseeing, we were beat, and Mom and Dad had to hurry home to get ready to go out to dinner.  I had no idea we had such cool stuff so close to us!  I guess it pays to always have your eyes open, even if you are a sighthound.

I'd like to ask a small favor of my Facebook friends.  I'm entered in a contest for Voyager's K9 Apparel on Facebook and if you're on Facebook and wouldn't mind voting for me, I'd really appreciate it.  All you have to do is "like" Voyager's and then you can see the Tummy Warmer contest entries.  You click "like" on my picture and that's all there is to it.  I know that Facebook isn't for everybody, so if you're not on there, I understand and it's all good.  I just figured I'd ask my friends and see if I could get a little help.   Here's my picture for the contest.

  26. Sorry we are not on FB, but we would definitely vote for you if we were. Isn't it funny how we don't stop to realize all the great things there are to see right in our own city or town? We loved seeing your statues with you posing there - nice photos.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  27. Wow ! That's one stylish coat. The gannets do facebook - I'll call them to help out .

  28. Oooo, what a sweet outfit! I logged on to FB and liked your picture! Good luck!

  29. HOly crap, you stood under the creepy sculpture. YOu are very brave greyhounds.

    woof - Tucker

  30. WOW! Look at all those Most Amazing sculptures! It's always fun to see new stuff, huh?

    Mom's on FB so I'll make sure she goes over and votes for your Most Beautiful picture!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  31. That is a beautiful picture of your German shepherd! My mom person forgets his name, is it Morgan? We apologize for her shoddy memory.

    We're going to go to vote on Facebook right now!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  32. Oh yeah, we had a question that maybe you guys could answer in a future post. It looks like you greyhounds wear special collars and harnesses. We were interested in learning more about them. Someday my mom person would like to adopt greyhounds so we were just wondering.

    Oskar & his mom person, Pam

  33. Bunny, you really are a stunning greyhound.

  34. You do look so regal. Were you scared of any of the statues? When Miss M was at Rock n Roll McDonalds there were some "statues" of people outside and she was so terrified...she was freaked out for the next 20 minutes.

  35. You both look so cool standing with all of those sculptures! Totally awesome! How can you be good for long...we'd have taken off as soon as mom turned her back! BOL

  36. Your picture is pawesome!
    Good luck!
    Kisses and hugs
