le chien nous fait de l'oeil ;)

Woody said...

The effect is comical!

San said...

I like the expression of the dog, slightly annoyed and mischievous.

Why does it surprise you, that I think that 2012 will be awesome? Or did I understand you wrongly?

Sharon said...

He does look annoyed by the things growing on him!

Poor thing he looks like he's got a case of the 'dreaded lurgy' JM!

Stickup Artist said...

I love the effects time and weather has taken on the dog! Even so, (s)he still looks so alive and alert. And I wonder what it must be like to live in a city that can boast an actual palace? Glad you are back out there JM!

Poor puppy, he is all covered with yellow stuff -- actually it looks kind of pretty in a way.

Cezar and Léia said...

Interesting sculpture! :)
This palace is wonderful!

I have to agree with Woody - the effect really is comical!

P.S. One of those white spots on the dog is shaped like a heart! May I feature this on a future Guest Heart Thursday? (With copyright to you and a link back to your blog?) :=}

He's still such a cute fellow -- even with the "stuff" all over him - in fact I think he has a great attitude -- even with the mossy stone! Great shot for the day, JM!

My god, they've eaten his eye! :-) The house doesn't look in bad shape, why would they let this wonderful sculpture get so beat up?

RedPat said...

How odd. Like Lowell I wonder why they haven't cleaned him off a bit!

So you have them too despite all those wonderful blue skies!!!

It looks like it has a skin disease. Impetigo?

Randy said...

Someone needs to take care of their dog.

I just love the expression on the dogs face while hanging on to his ball. The wall behind is beautiful. Diane

Dina said...

Oi, he has some skin disease.

I've always had a thing about lichen. Perhaps it was being impressed by the novel, "The Trouble with Lichen" I read as a young teenager. This is great.

Nice dog.
