Special thanks go to the San Diego-Edinburgh Sister City Society for funding this project. True Stories has worked in cooperation with Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation to realise the project for the first time in the United States. The project Talking Statues was started in Denmark in 2013 by David Fox and later came to Helsinki and London with the guidance from True Stories in Denmark.
Film Director David Fox got the idea for the project and the company behind the project is TrueStories ApS based in Copenhagen.
The idea for the Talking Statues is an original project by David Fox. The project was first presented for the City of Copenhagen in december 2012. And with the help from the City of Copenhagen that made the project possible.
The Project in San Diego is the first project made by True Stories in United States and we are were happy to revitalize San Diego and the Gas Lamp Quarter with the two talking statues of down dogs.

Famous statues in Denmark and England and Finland have already delighted locals and tourists by bringing their personalities, humor and opinions to life through their voices. It’s long been rumored that the Gaslamp Quarter is inhabited by ghosts. Now you can come down and meet two canine spirits who are happy to speak with you.
FAMOUS DOG STATUES NOW SPEAK!
After years of silence, two bronze statues of famous dogs are about to come to life. Visitors to the Gaslamp Museum and Park will be able to step back into history and listen to these amazing dogs tell their own stories. The statues start talking the 7th of July at 5PM
For the first time in the United States and thanks to the creation of True Stories ApS and the magic of technology, all you need is a smart phone to awaken the sleeping dogs. With a swipe of your phone over a sign at the base of their statue with a QR code or NFC tag, you will be connected with Bum, San Diego’s official town dog of 125 years ago, or with Greyfriars Bobby, the beloved Skye Terrier from Edinburgh, Scotland. Your phone will ring, and the monologues begin.
