In a move that has left the residents of Grafton scratching their heads, the bronze statue of Jerome Wheelock, Grafton Public Library’s benefactor, has been unexpectedly replaced by a new, furry figure: Cider the dog.

The swap, which occurred overnight, has sparked a whirlwind of speculation and excitement throughout the community. “I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it this morning,” exclaims longtime Grafton resident, Bella Barksley. “One day, we have Jerome Wheelock looming over us, and the next, we’ve got this adorable dog looking over the common.”

Cider was a beloved dog known for her friendly demeanor and unwavering loyalty to her human companions. With her playful antics and heartwarming presence, she stole the hearts of residents young and old alike. She went over the rainbow bridge in 2020.

“Cider was more than just a dog; she was a symbol of everything that’s good and pure in this world,” remarked librarian Lily Leashly. “Now her statue will serve as a reminder to us all to live with love, loyalty, and a wagging tail.”

Not everyone has embraced the change with open arms. “I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love Cider as much as the next person,” says Grafton local, Max Muzzleman. “But replacing Jerome Wheelock with a dog? It’s just… unexpected, to say the least.”

The mysterious swap has left many questions unanswered. Who is behind this canine coup? And what inspired the decision to replace a historical figure with a bronze dog? Speculation runs rampant, with theories ranging from a well-intentioned prank to a symbolic gesture of Grafton’s unwavering love for its four-legged residents.

For now, one thing is certain: Cider the dog has found herself in the spotlight, standing proudly in the heart of Grafton as a symbol of love, loyalty, and the indomitable spirit of community.

Stay tuned for further updates as this tail-wagging tale unfolds in the heart of our beloved town.
