Long Description:
Cassie was a dog who was memorialized by artist Sue McNeil Jacobson in 2003 in downtown Corvallis on the corner of SW 3rd and SW Madison St.

In doing some research, I found out that Sue has a website devoted to bronze sculptures and can be commissioned to doing a life-like bust or exact replica of a pet, such as Cassie, who sits by her water bowl in downtown Corvallis, inviting passersby to pet her on the head. With the amount of rain that Corvallis gets throughout the year, Cassie's water bowl is most likely full of water.

Cassie is also part of the Madison Avenue Task Force, a group of civic leaders, architects, students, residents, neighbors and business owners who's mission is to educate pedestrians of downtown Corvallis to it's history as well as to some creative examples of art. There is a walking tour that visitors can follow all over downtown Corvallis, highlighting specific works or art and history. Click here to check out their website.
