Attention au chien

Our friends Ina and Toiy own a fabulous garden house on a garden plot on the border Switzerland/Germany..
 Since a very long time they have this little toy dog. I think it does not even have a name. 
However, as a little boy our younger son was fascinated and scared by it, as it was leashed like a big and dangerous dog and on top there was this sign "Attention au chien" (French) which means "Beware of dog".
Upon our return home he would do the same with his plushies. 
Up to this day he has not forgotten about it and we laugh and joke about it.

Visiting Ina and Toni in June we all remembered this story and thought it would be worth a post.
So here you go! Meet that little dog! The painting on the door was done by Ina - it is still beautiful after all these years.

I hope you are spending this day happy and smiling with your beloved ones.
