Shepherd for the Marine Museum and the Drake Memorial
This German Shepherd monument was commissioned by Tim and Sandy Day (who titled their sculpture 'Caesar') to overlook the Semper Fidelis Park at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle, VA (near our recent installation of SSgt Reckless). It was installed in 2014. - German Shepherd MonumentInformation below each photo here -

Drake Memorial
Shortly after the original Marine Museum commission, there was an inquiry about a monument to represent service dogs. 'Service Sentinel' was a perfect fit, and so one was cast and shipped to Florida. - German Shepherd MonumentInformation below each photo here -
