Photo Of The Day from France: Dog On The Loose!

Advertising art and funny signs have always caught my attention and this one was no exception. Dog On The Loose!
 

Attention!! Dog On The Loose!


 
What the Google translate site actually says is a bit too literal — “Attention!! Dog freedom. If it shows you throw on the floor and wait for help. If it fails: courage.”

But surely you get the drift — Attention!! Dog on the loose. If it appears and comes after you, throw it down and call out for help. But if no one comes to help — have COURAGE!

***NOTE***
My friend Polly who is a language teacher up in Normandy has given me an even more clear translation. Thanks, Polly!

“Dog on the loose. If he appears throw yourself on the ground wait for help. If help doesn’t arrive, good luck!”

    It has given me some hilarious translations since I have lived in France! But most of the time, it gets the job done effectively enough for me to communicate with a government office or doctor or whatever. C’est la vie!

    What it actually says is “Dog on the loose. If he appears throw yourself on the ground wait for help. If help doesn’t arrive, good luck!”
