A pair of 7′ high bronze sculptures called The English Pug and the French Poodle have recently ben installed at the Place d’Armes in Montréal, Québec. The sculptures were created by Montreal artist Marc-André J. Fortier and were erected in 2013.

The French Poodle and Pug are looking at each other across the plaza while the owners are looking in opposite directions.
