Give that dog a bone!

Meet Boney! Boney is one of my favorite pieces of public art. He's located in Seton just across from the main entrance of the South Health Campus hospital.

One of the best things about Boney is that he wasn't tax payer funded under the city's art program. He's a shining example of art that is fun and NOT paid for by the city. At first glance Boney might look like he kind of has his nose in the air about it. But if you look at it from his perspective and follow his stare, you'll discover what he's really thinking.

It's going to drop any second now!

Hats off to Brookfield for adding Boney to their project. To learn more about his story, please see the video below.

I can't help but smile every time I see him.
