LINDSEY and MAGGIE
LINDSEY and MAGGIE is our newest memorial sculpture in the "Tribute Garden". Placed in the "Path of Honor" in November 2004, the statue is in memory of Lindsey Arensmeier, a client of the VTH who lost her life to breast cancer. "From the beginning our wishes were that this sculpture represent the bond between a pet and its owner - a bond that in the case of Lindsey and Maggie was unmatched," said Sharon Kahn. The sculpture is the work of Loveland, Colorado artist Jane DeDecker and represents the bond between Maggie and Lindsey - a bond broken only by death.
CHECK-UP pays tribute to Dr. Wendell Nelson, former director of the Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital. Dr. Nelson had 38 years of distinguished service and served as Director of the VTH from 1990 until his retirement in 2003. The sculpture is the work of artist Carol Cunningham of Estes Park, Colorado and was unveiled on January 9, 2004.
When only a few months old, Primrose's right hind leg was severely mauled by dogs. The leg had to be amputated and a prostheses developed to enable her to live a full life in the mountains of Colorado. The sculpture is the work of artist Dawn Weimer of Loveland, Colorado.
ANOTHER FILLY TO TRAIN
ANOTHER FILLY TO TRAIN was placed at the entrance of the Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital in the Fall of 1998. This sculpture, by artist Brenda Longworth of Berthoud, Colorado was selected by popular vote of faculty, staff and students to be the first life-size bronze sculpture on the grounds of the VTH.
