DIRTY BITER, TOWN HERO


First, let me tell you about Dirty Biter. Then, let it be known that La Conner is underrated in my opinion.
Dirty Biter was one of La Conner's great characters who reminded everyone of simpler times. He was kind of a funny looking dog because of a broken jaw suffered when he was a puppy, but he was a great town dog who loved everyone. He never thought a thing about going home with anyone who thought they might need a dog for the night. He had his own bar stool and place on the dance floor at his favorite hangout, the 1890s tavern. He was a real good beggar and his favorite was the tavern's broasted chicken, but he never passed up a good steak or burger. Biter left us one night doing something else he loved, a good old fashioned dog fight. Now, with this memorial, Dirty Biter will live on in the newly named Dirty Biter Park. How fitting that it just happens to be next to the tavern.
DIRTY BITER, OUR HERO

What a delightful town to so honor one of their canine citizens with a placque, a park and a statue. Ya gotta love it.
We did. It sits astride the Swinomish Channel. The place is teeming with artists; the shops a paradise of juicy choices. Sculpture gardens accompanied many businesses on First St., which runs next to the water, plus you know the people here have a sense of humor and great heart.
It was overly warm for Washington but my partner agreed to accompany me on the Sculpture Walk, a wonderful idea whereby sculptures are exhibited and a map shows their location on the street. Some were for sale, others not. (Dirty Biter, by Bill Matheson, is a permanent part of the town collection.)
The pictures I've included in my link below include pieces from local businesses since we didn't see them all on the walk. It wasn't the only attraction here, but more on that tomorrow.

The bible quite clearly says that is not so When was he going to get here? It's been 52 years and he has not arrived It would take only common sense to realize that it is impossible for everyone to do everything The good news is that, like many dog owners, the problems you're having can probably be traced to one simple thing: you're trying to communicate with your dog from a human standpoint, and your dog isn't a human

There were early 20th Century scholars who still promoted Locke's 'Tabula Rasa' How far have we come? What have we learned? How are we feeling? as a country, and as individuals? Honor those we knew and loved who lost their lives 7)God's Power to HealRemember,God still heals
