I did see a great warning sign on a gate in San Bruno

Utterly swell sign:    Dog on Premise

Not premises, premise.

Note, from American Heritage Dictionary (on-line):
1. premise, also, prem·iss. Logic. a proposition supporting or helping to support a conclusion.
2. premises.
a. a tract of land including its buildings.
b. a building together with its grounds or other appurtenances.
c. the property forming the subject of a conveyance or bequest.

That’s why you don’t argue with a guard dog, man, cos they are right on top of those things.

    Hmmmm. Maybe — and this is just a shot in the dark — the dog plans to speak publicly regarding “premise” as a concept. A little advertising signage can help draw crowds, especially for these existential topics. And what sensible modern canine doesn’t want to trend? The troubling fact is that there’s no date. Do we think that means said canine is speaking now, has always spoken, and plans to speak forever (in dog-years)?

    Good doggie!

    Ugh. Signs! Signs! Everywhere BADLY written signs!!!! This one is a treasure. Thank you for telling us about it.


  3. Slightly different than a dog on principle…


  4. Maybe the dog wrote the sign and he’s just itching for someone to make a comment about his spelling …


  5. perhaps Dog is advertising a philosophical lecture.
