Most countries would count a statue of a urinating dog among their more eccentric calling cards. Belgium isn’t most places. The headquarters of the European Union and NATO is also home to Manneken Pis, a 1619-era fountain of a little boy pissing, and claims to host the world’s heaviest cheese statue (weighing in at 1059 kilograms). If that’s not enough, there’s also Jeanneke Pis, Manneken’s female counterpart, and, since 1998, Het Zinneke (sometimes called Zinneke Pis), a life-size statue of a dog relieving itself on a bollard in Brussels’ city centre. Unlike its two micturating human counterparts, there’s no fountain attached to the bronze canine; the act of urination is implied with a lifted hind leg. Created by local sculptor Tom Frantzen, it was modelled after his own dog, who still roams (and presumably urinates in) the same neighbourhood. Unfortunately Het Zinneke suffered a nasty fate when a car ran into him in August 2015 and broke two of his legs. Luckily Frantzen was on hand to patch him up and put him back on the same street corner, where he receives mainly lacklustre reviews on Trip Advisor.
