The Charles Bridge

On one of the statues on the bridge, there is a bas relief
of a crowd throwing a saint over a bridge into a river.
It's good luck to rub the saint, so that image is bright and
shiny. Somewhere along the way, people started rubbing
the image of a dog on the other bas relief on the pedastal.
There's no meaning behind it, but the dog is now just as
shiny as the saint.
