smileIf you know me, you know I love dogs. They have been called ďManís Best FriendĒ, and for good reason. When I come home from a dayís work, there he is wagging his tail, glad that I am home. At least that is what I tell myself, the truth may be that he knows when I get home itís almost time to eat!

Anyway. While driving through Big Rapids the other day, I noticed an interesting painted sculpture of a dog and had to stop and take a picture. I discovered and interesting event entitled year of the dawgs. Hosted by the Leadership Mecosta, this is designed to be a community art project. Twenty-five fiberglass bulldawgs, standing about three feet tall and four feet long, were painted by a local artist. They are now displayed at the sponsorís business site. The art I saw was well done. Sometimes when I look at art, I think I could do better, but in this case I could not begin to match what these artists are doing.

Next time you travel thru Big Rapids on the way to your favorite lake, slow down and have a good laugh. I promise it will brighten your day.
