Tube Dude Pets

SDP  2-23-13
Tube Dude artwork has been featured many times before on SDP.  (Click the label below to see previous posts.)  In the past, I've shown the standard smiling stick figures, which are pretty common to see around Sarasota nowadays.  But, these Tube Dudes, located in front of Bee Ridge Veterinary Clinic, caught my eye and prompted me to pull over for a photo opp.  This is Tube Dude waiting for Tube Doggie to take care of business apparently before seeing the doctor.  And, for those who are more feline friendly....

...here's Tube Kitty, having a good stretch on a flagpole just feet away from Tube Doggie.  Very clever indeed. The man behind the Tube Dude creations used to build yachts here in Sarasota but reinvented himself when the economy tanked several years ago. You can read his story by clicking here.

Love the Tube Dude pets! What a great back story. How wonderful to be able to reinvent yourself and be successful.

Very inventive and creative artist. Love the stretching Kitty. Also a flag is appropriate today since it is the anniversary of the flag raised on Iwo Jima.

We all need a smile to start the day, and these photos just did it! Cute, cute.

How creative and the vet clinic's yard art is so appropriate as a reminder to the doggy patients.

I am partial to pink kitty.

Bises,

I like a lot! Not only creative but lots of fun. You can't help but smile!

I'd say they are a very nice addition to Sarasota!
