Well this turned out to be sort of an inadvertent April Fool. You see at first, Sweet Praline guessed that I was in San Diego, but I wasn’t. Milo and Alfie thought I was in Washington DC. Artemisia, Fenris, Socks and Scylla also thought I was in San Diego. Praline went and searched and said, “I’ve got it. It’s the Homecoming Statue in Kirkland, Washington.
A replica of The Homecoming© statue was dedicated in Kirkland on July 4, 2001. The statue overlooks Puget Sound from its location in Marina Park. The Homecoming© is dedicated to Navy families, and is Kirkland’s “heartwarming expression” of family unity. Kirkland is also called “the city of outdoor statues” so The Homecoming© is also a participant of the city’s artistic expression.”
And she was correct!
The Florida Furrkids also got it correct.
I had no idea how many times this same statue was around. But it seemed appropriate for an April Fool’s Find Chey, don’t you think? I bet it would have been easier if it had been raining. That was an unusually nice day there in Kirkland.
Sweet Praline says
Yay! I can’t believe I finally got one first! I am so excited! Can’t you see me dancing around? Yeah, right!

Praline was a good tracker to find you, Chey. And so were the FL Furkids.
Nice work Praline!!!
Concats again to Sweet Praline! That is a wonderful statue and so nice that there are replicas of it in various places, because then many more people can enjoy it.
