Pappy's Sworn Enemies

Pappy's Sworn EnemiesOn many an evening's walk in the neighborhood, Pappy will go berserk at the sight of these deer lawn ornaments. I can hardly blame him... Bambi freaks me out too.

Very interesting non-representational art. Have any flamingoes in your neighborhood. My favorite thing to bark at is a wooden cutout of a little boy. Quite representational, as you can tell that he is taking a pee in the bushes. Oops, I've embarrased muzzer!

Hmmmm.... nothing really freaks me out on walks... but last night I got freaked out (for only a few seconds) by Dad spraying my muzzle with whipped cream... Dad always says that I should confront and conquer my fears. He is teaching me not to be afraid of water.

Love and Licks,
Texas (and his humans).

This is Takoma Park, home of the weird! We used to have some flamingos around the corner, but I think those people moved. Towards downtown we also have someone with a kangaroo lawn ornament with a human baby in it's pouch.

I can only imagine the horror of your animatronic reindeer.

I never thought of those christmas ornaments as deer skeletons-- now I'm never going to sleep again.

We have this huge buffalo on the Q St. bridge. Thankfully Pappy's never seen it.

But these deer, they are as much of a menace as the whipped cream. I think you'd bark too.

Yikes, those two are scary!! Hmm, maybe if you pee on them, they'll go away???

Thankfully they are protected by chain link. If Pappy had access to them, there'd be a lot more flying around than a little pee.
