HusQuay the MerDog

HusQuay the Merdog has arrived at Mermaid Quay. The 1.5m tall hand-decorated statue of the Raymond Brigg’s inspired Snowdog has pride of place on the Quayside and will be here until Sunday 26 November.

HusQuay forms part of the Snowdogs: Tails in Wales public art trail in aid of Tŷ Hafan, Wales’ leading children’s hospice. The trail, the largest of its kind ever held in the Welsh capital, comprises 43 individually painted Snowdog sculptures installed across Cardiff, inspiring people to get out in the fresh air for walkies, to enjoy being active and spend quality play-time together and to take some fetching selfies with the dogs all across the city.

The theme of Snowdogs: Tails in Wales is based on the much-loved novel and animated film, The Snowman™ and The Snowdog. It’s the story of a little boy who is mourning the death of his pet dog and is comforted when the Snowman and Snowdog he builds mysteriously come to life. Drawing on themes of dealing with loss and friendship, the Snowdogs relates directly to the support Tŷ Hafan offers at its hospice in Sully and in communities across Wales.
