Dog Statues in Aspin Hill Memorial Park

When a monument to a pet includes the figure of a dog, it pulls at my heart just a little bit harder.  These are the best of the dog statues in Aspin Hill Memorial Park.

I took this photo in May 2013, around the time I first started photographing around Aspin Hill Memorial Park. Lately, there’s been a bone between Skippy’s two paws. I’m sure he’d have loved that.

Robin Goodfellow’s owner, A. Wilson Mattox, is likely the first human to be buried at Aspin Hill Memorial Park, back when it was known as Aspin Hill Cemetery for Pet Animals.

I love this little guy holding a basket of flowers in his mouth. I have several photographs of him. It was hard to pick just one.

I love that this bulldog with a grumpy expression has such a sweet name. You’ll notice that Bunny has a newspaper under his front paws.
