Rodrigue Blue Dog -Black Tie Dog - Cows on Parade (nwt)

Up for Auction is a NWT Blue Dog - Black Tie Dog - Cows on Parade Figurine. This item has been removed from the box and plastic bag ONLY to take pictures. It has never been displayed. I purchased it at Carol's Hallmark in St. Louis, MO as a Blue Dog fan, but never put it on display.

This figurine was manufactured in 2000 as a replica of one of three full-size cows from the Cows on Parade Chicago display. This cow was abruptly retired as a result of a dispute between the artist (George Rodrigue) and the figurine manufacturer. Highly collectible.

All proceeds from this auction will be pledged to support my good friend who Pete is riding in the Wisconsin AIDS Ride on August 7-10. He is riding with his son Bon, daughter Cassie and niece Nicole. Over course of 4 days they will ride 300 difficult miles in beautiful (hilly) Wisconsin because they each feel deeply for this cause.

They each have pledged $1,200 to ride and I would like to help them reach their goal(s). Please bid generously for this one-of-a-kind, hard to find collectible and a fantastic, very worthwhile cause - AIDS care, counseling and prevention.

Please email me with any questions. Thanks for looking and please bid for this great cause!
