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.


  1. The dogs will have a whole lot of fun. A fine way to pay tribute to him.

  2. What a lovely place for dogs:) My dog Bambi would love that;D

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