I was so intrigued by the statue, I bought the book Sea Dog Bamse—World War II Canine Hero available in the Honningsvag museum, which also deserves a visit.

A lovely honor to a dog that deserved it. A nice thing to come across as we were wandering the town of Honningsvag.

This amazing dog was a hero, I highly recommend reading about his deeds, which include immense loyalty and even saving lives. His statue is located in front of the souvenir shop in the port of Honningsvag.

This is a stunning statue of a fearless, war hero dog. I had never heard about him before and was intrigued to read of his story and exploits in WW II. Makes a nice photo stop. He sits in front of a nice gift store with a good variety of items. Clean restrooms inside store.

The statue is a heartwarming tribute to all of the invisible parties in the war, in this case to the canine type. The statue has a nice feeling about it and our dogs felt a kinship with it :) The story itself remains a bit unclear even after reading the text, but luckily there is a whole book about Bamse to be bought at the shop next to the statue.
