Today's photo features "Pete" the bronze dog, one of the statues honoring Greensboro writer O. Henry. The trio of statues is located at the corner of Bellemeade and North Elm Street. If you are local, you may know that O. Henry (William Sydney Porter) was born in Greensboro. The above dog is the protagonist in his short story, "Memoirs of a Yellow Dog" The Four Million. The day we visited, someone had placed a bit of holiday greenery on the Pete's head.
The photo of Pete also reminds us of how much Greensboro residents love their canines. While this story is not as well know as O. Henry's "Gift of the Magi," the 1,977 word tale "Memoirs of a Yellow Dog," can be read and heard, here. Bark if you're having a great Tuesday! Give us a high-paw five if you read the short story and a double high-paw five if you've seen the statue in person.
