Photographer's Note

It was an extraordinary story, a Skye-Terrier dog who spent 14 years until 1872, near the grave of his owner, while the people of the city taken care of him with food and shelter on colder nights and days.
Dedication that became a legend, the statue nose is constantly being "rubbed" for luck, and from the time I spent near it – every by-passer, either local or tourist did that, out of admiration. For any dogs lover – it is a moving story.
The grave of his owner and the dog's is on the cemetery right beyond this pub on the picture.
