This year an arts group found businesses to sponsor artists who painted dog statues, much the way that West Hartford artists painted cows and Naples artists painted turtles.
A woman and her dog walked past at exactly the right moment, in front of a dog statue and
a neon "Bow Wow" sign in the window of RPAC Gallery on Main Street.
The town's first selectman (think "mayor") Rudy Marconi sponsors a dog in front of his home.
Eight agents at Keller Williams Real Estate sponsored small dogs in front of their office.
"Tiffany" emulates stained glass.
Dogs were chosen for Ridgefield because it is such a dog-loving town.
Proceeds from their auction will support arts projects.
