dog dark

Another one from Jacqui:

– i saw this one and it so made me laugh – though please please don’t tell TAMs it must stay as is – precious cultural capital.

take your dog to the dog dark. bring a torch. or be sorry.

The dog is in the box because he is a light coloured dog. He has to sit in the box and watch the dark coloured dogs play. Dog apartheid at its worst!

this is so funny! well done. im laughing. though please – he or she sit in box. more correct. correct is good.

thanks johnboy for not including the improved version advice: dark dark. if go with dog,no torch, trip over something. older emails come before younger (later) emails.

I know what my cat is doing when it’s sitting in a box like that…

You left out a letter.

He is not. Dogs are very obvious when doing what you suggest he’s doing. And they always look a bit embarassed, too.

the dog IN the tuckerbox?

Mmmm yummy

the dog IN the tuckerbox?

I think it’s meant to indicate the dog is fenced in.

Dog dark, however, was spelled perfectly.

I’m a bit mystified by how they decided which words got capitals, and which did not.

Back in the Olden Days, having quite a high standard of English, and an eye for detail, were pre-requisites for qualifying as a signwriter.

You know, I read the sign and did not see anything wrong with it, it wasn’t until I read the blurb and realised that the dog park was spelt wrong.

We were in the dark about this one too until you pointed it out. Thanks.
