Bronze statue of Greyfriars Bobby, a Skye Terrier known in 19th-century Edinburgh for spending 14 years guarding the grave of his owner. This was donated in 2005 by the City of Edinburg, Scotland, commemorating 25 years as a San Diego Sister City. On October 7, 2007, it was dedicated in 'The Brother Dog Statues' ceremony along with San Diego's official dog 'Bum'. Both life-sized bronze statues are displayed in the William Heath Davis House Park in the Gaslamp Quarter.
