Tribute to a vet, training promenade for dogs

.

Camera-Critter folks, look what citizen volunteers of Meitar started building a few months ago!
A nice shiny drinking bowl too. 


Complete with rebar bracing up on top!


When finished (maybe it is already) this will be a dog-training and dog-exercise promenade in memory of a beloved local veterinarian, Dr. Doron Avishai (1953-2013).
Click 2x to enlarge and to better see his photo on the sign. 


I remember from my volunteer years at Heifer Ranch how much work goes into digging post holes, mixing concrete, and setting posts straight.
It has to be a labor of love.


All these are right across the path from Meitar's new fenced-in dog park I showed you last week.


Looks like the dogs are going to have fun.



Nice detail work on the balance beams-cum-benches.

Rest in peace, Dr. Doron Avishai, knowing your memory lives on.

UPDATE:  The place was soon completed and a Dog Day was held, to the delight of Dr. Avishai's widow.

Doesn't this make you want to go out and adopt a dog?
