We had a walk along Dundee's High Street this morning and came across this 8 feet tall bronze statue of Desperate Dan, who appears to be in a hurry, out walking with his dog Dawg!
This is one of the most photographed statues in Dundee.
For those not familiar with the history, Desperate Dan is a 'Wild West Character' in the British comic magazine 'The Dandy'. He is apparently the world's strongest man and is able to lift a cow with one hand!
Aptly situated in Dundee as this is where his publishers D.C. Thomson are based.
The Desperate Dan statue was unveiled in 2001.
Be sure to look out for him when you have a walk through Dundee's High Street.
