As I say in the title it's only worth visiting as part of a visit to the church building, but as with the latter it's swamped by tourists.

This is just another statue of man's best friend. It is located near the church of the good shepherd. This statue is dedicated to the sheep dogs who are invaluable to the people in this region. An acknowledgement of their contribution.

I wasn't so taken with the dog monument but the views of the lake & the clouds in the sky are beautiful. For me this was how I expected clouds to be when they say the 'Land of the long white cloud, plenty of parking here & hundreds of tourists really was very busy.

The statue is within a short walk from the Church of the Good Shepard and not many tourists were near it so we took a lot of great shots of it with the mountains in the background. It is a great tribute to the hard working dogs of the region!
