My recollections of FIDO was that his tail wagged and his eyes lit up. Today he just stood there mute, guarding the railway station. A handsome dog anyway.

What a fun thing to have in your suburb. A great photo op with your own dog and just something unexpected at a suburban railway station.

Something different. Good to see the council spending my rates money wisely. Walked under the huge dog last night, it us still looking good after a few years standing by the railway crossing. Worth taking a photo if you are in the area.
