Runaway bronze retriever found in Vail's Gore Creek

By Real Vail

A stolen bronze sculpture of a golden retriever was found in Gore Creek in Vail on Tuesday.

The sculpture, stolen June 3 while on display in front of Cogswell Gallery, at 223 Gore Creek Dr. in Vail Village, was recovered by the gallery manager, Jason Leach.

Leach, who has been on constant lookout for the dog, said the recent drop in water volume increased visibility and aided in his search.

Submersion amongst the rocks damaged the artwork’s appearance, and because it was full of sediment, Leach told police he has concluded the sculpture had been in the creek since it was taken.

While restoration is in the works, Leach said it is great to have the dog back in its rightful place -- at the center of the fountain for everyone to enjoy.

Vail Police are still investigating this crime. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Police Department at (970) 479-2200, and they can remain anonymous.

I used to have a dog that ran away all the time, too. Sometimes you just can't control 'em. Probably some female bronze dog in heat out yonder 'cross the River.

The solvent controls the drift and application of the paint. It’s combined into the paint, generally with a brush, to dilute it to the right viscosity, or thickness, before it’s implemented to the surface.
