A shaggy dog in the dunes

Debbie’s Six Word Saturday

Debbie’s post – Long tail and a shaggy dog tale – made me think of a shaggy dog. This shaggy dog started life as a piece of dune vegetation. With the inventiveness of an artist and a photographer, who were walking through the dunes track, exploring and finding things it was then that the vegetation began to develop into something.

A bit of greenery added, some Banksia cones placed here and there, soon a shaggy dog began to appear.


I often wondered if anyone else noticed our shaggy dog. Often when we go for a walk something on the side of the road or track sparks a bit of creativity and quite often a bit of laughter. I am sure we are not the only people who create from found objects and leave them for others to find.

This scene was taken in Tasmania last year. It represents the Returned Service people from the wars. Quite fitting as today is ANZAC Day.
