A Clever Idea

Apparently there is a chap in South Africa who was so fed up of people breaking into his yard that he had his dog clipped to look like a lion. Since then he hasn't had a problem at all.

What a clever idea.












Do you think it would work if I did the same with him?

Thought not!

That made me laugh!
Yes a very clever idea.

Hmmm - I don't think even a complete wimp like me would be very scared of your little dog... unless he barks very loudly...
You should be receiving your copy of Cut Short soon, Debs. I hope you enjoy it!

Me too, how funny is the first photie when you've seen the second? And the third one is even better, he's so aptly named x

I'm sure Grumpy would do his best to behave in a suitably lion-like manner!

Melissa Marsh said...

Hahaha - that's cute!

Lane said...

'Just you try it!' says Grumpy.

Fia said...

I'm sure Grumpy has the heart of a lion and if looks could kill...

He is very lovely:)

Anna said...

Oh my this made me laugh!!

I don't think Grumps agrees, however...

Liane Spicer said...

That is so funny!

L'Aussie said...

Hilarious, but what could I make my little foxy/chihuahua look like? A ferocious rat??

Amanda said...

Ha Ha, Grumpy looks like he can read your mind! :-)

sheepish said...

Brilliant idea but I don't think my Basset would be much good either. Could try a sheep in wolf's clothing I suppose!!!!

Remember David and Goliath?

Carol said...

hahaha, if you do decide to give it a go please post the pictures!!

Oh, you have made me laugh - poor Grumpy!!

Pat Posner said...

I bet Grumpy could be very scary if he tried.

Lucy Diamond said...

I love that! And what a hard stare Grumpy's got - enough to see off any burglars!

Fionnuala Kearney said...

Love it!

Karen said...

So funny! I think Grumpy's expression would be enough to scare off intruders, bless him :o)

casdok - I love the lion-look, but laughed at the pic of his face, so sweet.

leigh - he has a high-pitched bark that drives us all nuts. Can't wait to receive my book.

l-plate - he is, isn't he?

helen - he thinks he's far bigger than he actually is.

melissa - I know.

lane - he probably thought that too.

fia - he certainly does, bless him.

anna - he's a miserable little devil.

liane - thanks.

l'aussie - aw, so sweet.

amanda - I think he probably can.

sheepish - bassets are too cute to change in any way.

captain black - haha, I certainly do. I think you may have a point there.

carol - I wouldn't dare try it on him, he'd fight me all the way.

chrish - poor him.

pat - he has his moments (very occasionally).

lucy d - he doesn't possess a cheerful expression, poor him.

fionnuala - thanks.

karen - people do get scared of him as he can act really vicious. We have two postmen, one doesn't mind him at all, and the other hates him. It's mutual too.

You make me giggle. Kat :-)

Debs said...

kat - it amused me too (should I admit that?)

womagwriter said...

LOL!

Oh brilliant. I love it.
