This bronze sculptural work is a tribute to doggie defecation and a reminder to pick it up. Designed by artist Jerzy S. Kenar, the fountain is an ode to all the dogs in the neighborhood known to trample and defecate on his flowers. Technically, the statue is on Kenar’s private property preventing a larger outcry over its subject matter. It is a generally beloved quirk of the neighborhood.
