Something to See in Brussels

Brussels' Manneken Pis statue
of a urinating baby can be found in gardens and fountains all over the world.

Less well known is Zinneke Pis, the statue of a dog who is forever lifting his leg onto a Brussels street pole. Zinneke Pis was installed in the center of Brussels, on the corner of Rue des Chartreux and Rue de Vieux-Marche, in 1998.  The creator of the dog lives in the neighborhood, and he modeled it after his own pet.

Wouldn't be too hard to plumb some water to it.
