Military Working Dog Memorial
Location: Encinitas, California Dedication: April 16th, 2011 Sculptor/Design: Honor Life
The Military Working Dog Memorial at the Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Encinitas California is the result of the inspiration RCHS president Jim Silveira felt after visiting Arlington National Cemetary with other military working dog teams. He went with animal advocate Madeleine Pickens and her retired military working dog Chyba that she adopted when Chyba retired from service. The memorial is modeled after Chyba who is living the good life now with Madeleine and her husband T. Boone Pickens.
