Who would have guessed?

In a post earlier today I mentioned that things are not always what they appear to be.

There is a house in my street that has a polished metal yard door and polished metal yard walls.

On the door there is a sign in Georgian that says “There is a ferocious dog in the yard!”

The sign is written in red and I have often wondered if it was written with the blood of a poor unfortunate visitor.

I had always thought that the dog must be extremely formidible, especially as it needs to be contained by a metal door and walls.

Well……….

……..when I was waiting for the school bus with the little person we happened to see this mighty canine!

Who would have guessed?

He is so small I almost tripped over him! Needless to say, he took one look at me and retreated to the safety of his polished metal door.

Hmm, it would appear that the use of an exclamation mark at the end of the warning sign is meant to be ironic.

  1. BOL! The face he took a look at you Bassa, is pretty cute, isn’t it? He looks very innocent in contrast to the meaningful metal door! 🙂
