Advertising art and funny signs have always caught my attention and this one was no exception. 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!
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!”
