Another masterpiece found in the Koch Carousel Gardens is Murphy the Shaggy Dog Topiary. Local artists Connie Ernatt and Joanna Ediger from Johnson's Garden Centers are the creators of this incredible furry friend.

Connie spent a month welding the metal frame for the topiary. Then she sculpted a nose and eyes, which were installed in July 2021. Joanna and her team from Johnson's Garden Centers finished covering it in chicken wire, stuffing and planting the frame.

Come see the fluffy pup for yourself in the gardens!
