Blue Dog turns Black and Gold

by Mary Tutwiler

Lafayette artist George Rodrigue’s biggest Blue Dog, the 28 foot tall jumbo dog sculpture at Veterans Memorial Boulevard and Severn Avenue, is sporting his Saints colors today. Built here in Lafayette by Begneaud Manufacturing, the three sided sculpture flaunts the Acadiana tri-color, red, blue and yellow. Rodrigue applied  Saints emblem fleur de lis and “Go Saints” stickers to the big dog this week. Wuf Dat.
