The Southeastern Guide Dog Assoc has commissioned several artists to decorate statues of dogs which will be displayed throughout the city. Joe Palmerio has painted one of the dogs and it will be displayed throughout the summer at Dream Weaver in St. Armand's. What makes this dog special is that Joe painted the images of actual people, most military, who have benefited from being partnered with one of the guide dogs. Each image has a story and you can tell from the photos below that their stories are very moving.
The dog will arrive at Dream Weaver in St. Armands by the the end of the first week of June. Click the link below to learn more.
Is there a way to make this known to the members of MOAS? I think our members would appreciate seeing "Oakie" and knowing what he stands for.
