Breaking news from Portsmouth, NH, USA....
There's an exhibit of big dog sculptures on Pierce Island in Portsmouth until August 18. The exhibit will move to Ogunquit, Newburyport, Beverly and Lowell for five days each in August and September.
If you've seen the dog sculpture along Route 495 near Haverhill, these are the work of the same artist, Dale Rogers.
Bailey, Jim and I stopped by Portsmouth to check out the dogs. We'd read they were on Four Tree Island, where dogs are not allowed.
We were happy to see that they were on Pierce Island, where dogs are allowed - except in the playground.
These 20 dog sculptures are 8 feet high, 10 feet long, and weigh 500 pounds each. I'm so happy that they came to Portsmouth and we got to see them.

There are benches and picnic tables....so you could grab a snack at Sanders Fish Market or Dos Amigos - or bring a picnic.
Tomorrow I will catch up with the end of our beach vacation. Saturday is cottage changeover day in Maine, so lots of packing is happening tonight and tomorrow morning!
Doesn't Bailey seem like he wants to be a big dog too?
