critters above

All old cities have fun architecture full of various critters on the facades of buildings. On a recent lunch hour I noticed some.

Lions are without a doubt the most popular animals to put on buildings. Here's one in bronze on top of a library.

Here's a stone lion on a bank - or former bank I think. And there was another one on the other side of on the former bank.

But what's this one in the middle of the former bank. It doesn't look like a lion.... and on closer inspection it's not.

It's an old hound dawg - definitely the first time I've seen one of those on a building.
