My kids love seeing the bulldogs as we drive or walk around Athens. They yell each time one is seen or have to get their photo sitting on one. I hope these remain for many years.

There isnt really much to say about this. It is what it is. Not a lot of thought put into it. Could have done more to represent the college and the atmosphere.

Be sure and look for these all over Athens. They are very interesting in how they are done. Loved the Georgia Power worker dog. To go along with the dogs many hydrants are painted as well. Liked the crayola one.

Unless you are a dyed-in-the-wool GA Dawgs fan, this is NOT a must-see. BUT it is so much fun!!! You just want to go get your picture taken here. Silly, goofy, fun art announcing to the world that this is dawg country!!!.

The Let the Dawgs Out art exhibit is an awesome display of the city of Athens spirit and love for our home town University of Georgia Bulldogs. Definitely something any traveling sports fan wants to visit while in the hippest, best college town in America.......More

Othe cities have Alligators, Bears or Cows, Athens has Dawgs. They are scattered around town, each one being unique.
