Spring-tailed Dalmatian

Artist: Gerald Heffernon (2008)

The Spring-Tailed Dalmatian appears to be descending a fire pole, but with a twist: the dog's tail is coiled like a spring to soften the landing. The sculpture speculates whimsically on a specialized breed of fire dog, one that is particularly well-suited for its fire station duties.
