We'd been told about the story and it is quite famous. We were walking that way anyway and it's easy to find. People have rubbed the dogs nose so it's now quite shiny, which is kinda cute. Beware the drunk though...

A lovely little tear-in-the-eye tale of a loyal tail. Take a pic, rub the nose if you wish and meander on. Lovely stop for animal lovers and/or small kids.
Such a fantastic loving story beh8nd this statue and its nic3 to see the animals can be commemorated too. Touch his nose for good luck. Having seen it once many years ago I felt the need to see it again.
You can not help but be touched by this statue of a little dog who was faithful to his master even in death. Makes you wonder how faithful we are to our own love ones.
Shame that this lovely little doggie has had so many rubs of his nose that it is now nearly gone. I was amazed at the number of tourists stopping for pictures here.
Plenty of tourists thronging round this wee statue. Pretty small but it reminds you of the wee fathfull dog who wouldn't leave his master's grave.
Nice little statue of legendary Scottish dog. Was quite the draw everyone was getting their picture with this somewhat small statue.
We made a point of visiting the memorial and found it with no problems. It does get busy due to its popularity but most people are courteous and will stand back and wait in turn to get a picture rubbing his nose for luck.
We stopped and had our picture taken with Bobby. Not sure if his legend is actually accurate or not. However, even if it is not, the theme of his story is a good one, loyalty and undying love.
