Sheraton and a Surprise

I was concentrating on getting the reflection of the Sheraton Read House Hotel and wasn't paying attention to anything else in the picture. When I looked at it on my computer I noticed the sculpture of the man watching the little dog on the unicycle.
I'll have to go back sometime and get a better picture of this by itself. Incidentally, while I was reading up on the history of the Read House I learned that several famous people, including Winston Churchill,  stayed here. I think the statue resembles him a bit.

A dog on a unicycle? Even Churchill would have to stop and look at that!

Must be related to the circus.

The reflection shot is beautiful but the surprise dog/man is too cute.

When I saw this I immediately thought of Churchill's "black dog." That is what he called his states of depression that dogged him all of his life.

Update on the little dog: I drove by this again yesterday and saw that it is simply a poodle with fluffy fur balls around its paws,and it is in a cowering position. Sorry for the misinformation.
