Beware of Dog

One thing I throughly detest is the practice of erecting copious amounts of “Beware of Dog” and “No Parking” signage on residential property. Not only are they an eyesore, but there usually is not a canine on said premises and if someone is a big enough asshole to park in front of your driveway a twelve by eighteen inch piece of plastic is not going to deter him. The previous having been established, I rolled my eyes in disgust when I walked by this house yesterday.

Maspeth Avenue

Knowing a good train wreck when I see one, I went in for a closer look.

Guard Geese

Not only does the flag on the mailbox have handy user instructions on it, but a guard dog is purported to live on the premises.

No Parking

The word on the street is, he (or she) sucks.

Guard Dog

I dunno, he looks awfully cute to me. Isn’t it kind of cruel to keep a dog tethered to the fence like this? Of course the big question is who does one call to report this: the A.S.P.C.A. or F.A.O. Schwartz?

  2. I’m glad you wrote that. I couldn’t figure out if he was real or not. Either way, this whole front yard smacks of abuse. I feel bad for the neighbors.

  4. I have to make a confession: I kind of like it. I wish I could hit a replicate button and pepper the “nicer” parts of this borough with this house. I bet the inside is even more interesting!
