  • Great to see homage paid to the working dogs of the McKenzie country let alone the working dogs of New Zealand  more »
  • It's literally statue of a dog, erected to honour the collie dogs for their service, without which the village would not have been possible. It's a nice statue I guess  more »
  • What was made in 1968, took an active part in the pioneering days of rail no boundaries (boundaries) to protect sheep dogs work. Nameplate the boundary dog statue, is inscribed words of thanks to the sheep dog. Comes much earlier was sparsely populated, but in 2017, when quite a few people, I was surprised. It was crowded with people taking pictures of this statue and the starry sky at night.
