This fun and exuberant sculpture links the themes of wild animal and domestic dog. A bronze beaver in the creek slaps the water with its tail and creates an over-sized splash of stainless steel. An extension of the splash sends a bright yellow ball in a high-arcing trajectory ten feet high. Fifteen feet away, a bronze dog leaps ten feet in the air and in visual time lapse sequence catches the ball, completing the connection between the two sculptural elements and the two worlds.
