A trip down memory Lane…

Anyone remember these?

Nina Camplin

I am the artist who painted these dog murals as part of my fine art degree, they were painted in 2006, working with DogLost to highlight the disappearance of local dogs in the Poole and Bournemouth area.

These life size representations of individual dogs were painted onto street walls alongside the ‘MISSING’ poster. Unfortunately none of the dogs were ever found and most of the murals have now been removed. I believe there is another one still remaining on the back of Storm Restaurant in Poole, as well as the 2 mentioned here.

A Doglost bandana to anyone who can send in a photo of the mural in Poole!

Yes even the DogLost posters were painted on the walls.

    My manager at work had asked me about these a long time ago, it wasn’t till someone asked on our DogLost Dorset Facebook group that I found the answers.

    Thank you to Nina for permission to post these here.

    I may just have to go off on a mission 😉 That would be a little unfair though as I know exactly where to find it 😅
