Will you be anywhere near The Windy City this summer? The Chicago Tribune reports The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation is backing a public art initiative called K-9s for Cops to bring 200 German shepherd statues to the Magnificent Mile and other locations from July 23rd to Labor Day.

The 54-inch statues will be made of fiberglass, designed and painted by local artists in collaboration with sponsors. After Labor Day, the statues will be auctioned off to benefit both the memorial foundation and PAWS Chicago, where the money will be used for a spay / neuter initiative. A similar project featuring Horses of Honor several years ago netted $480,000.

Can’t wait to see it!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
