Funny 'No Dogs Allowed' Signs
Will and Guy have a diverse collection of 'No dogs allowed' signs. We also have funny notices relating to various other animals.
Our Most Amusing No Dogs Allowed Sign
No Dogs Allowed - BOW WOW, WOOF, RUFF RUFF
The sign, above right, was spotted in the Church Fields Recreation Ground, Chessington, Surrey, England
Guy thinks that this means that dogs are permitted. Will thinks that really, this sign says 'No Dogs Allowed', but the spaniel is sitting on the 'No'. What do you think?
In fact this matter is no joke because these 'No Dogs and Chinese Allowed' signs date back to the pre-World War II period when various European (particularly British) and American districts were established in Shanghai, and these foreigners did not want their parks fouled by dogs and Chinese (not that the latter left any deposits, just that their presence was not desired in these exclusive parks). Kindly sent in by T S A Quan.
This 'No Dogs Allowed Sign' set Will and Guy wondering - Does the above sign mean: No dogs; no bicycles; or no dogs on bicycles? Once you have worked that out, what part does the ATM machine play? What IS permitted here?
No Dogs Allowed - All pets must be on a leash?
The above funny dog signs remind me of a malapropism I heard when teaching. The head-of-year had a brand new charity project. In assembly he proudly announced: 'We are going to have a collection for blind dogs for the guides'.
A council in Newark and Sherwood District Council in Nottinghamshire, England has banned dogs from almost all of its park areas. It has put dog control orders (DCOs) in 72 park areas to make sure people look after their pets in public places.
The orders issued in April 2010 ban dogs completely from play areas, fields and open spaces. Furthermore, council jobsworths, park rangers and police community support officers can issue on-the-spot fines of £75 for breaches of the orders.
Naturally, dog owners are up-in-arms, Clarissa Baldwin, the Dogs Trust chief executive said: 'A total ban on all dogs is a complete overreaction to the problem of a small minority of owners failing to clean up after their pets.'
She said they were concerned the elderly, disabled or those on low incomes would struggle to travel to other areas to exercise their pets. Clarissa also pointed out that it is a requirement of the Animal Welfare Act that dogs are allowed to express their natural behaviour, which includes free exercise.
The Kennel Club also added its weight to the criticism. Communications director Caroline Kisko said: 'Dog control orders are becoming more common as councils attempt to find ways to control dog fouling and reign in irresponsible dog owners. 'While the Kennel Club does not object to the council's less severe orders of imposing fines for dog walkers who do not pick up after their dogs, and introducing "dogs on lead by direction" orders, we feel that the exclusion zones are far too restrictive.
