No more plaster lions!

I've always noticed that when people have a country house here, they often opt to have plaster lions (white, but sometimes gold....) on the tops of the gate posts on either side of the entrance to their garden. While in a nearby country town the other weekend, I came upon these plaster dogs! Though they're most likely Saint Bernards, I thought they looked a bit like Bibi, so I immortalized her here with one. Borrowed my son's hands again, like I did here.

cute photo, but I really like the new header, colorful serenity.

Wow, I don't think I've noticed such things here. Here, people don't use such decorations (at most, I've seen elfs or water fountains).

I don't think Bibi liked the comparison (although I like her necklace -"Follow your dreams"-).

Bibi said...

Lady Jicky, I don't really know. Bibi is a rescued dog from a local shelter. I kind of think she's part Pekinese and (?) though she hasn't got any Pekinese feistiness.

Bibi is very photogenic. Much more so than her rather stiff friend.

It is a plaster Bibi! Your son is such a good hand model!

Becky said...

It really does resemble your Bibi! How adorable! Just the right size, too. Well done, Son, also. :)

She's way cuter than the stone puppy. Fun to get a sense of her true size with the hand there to give scale. This is very fun to see.
