Friends, there has been an alarming proliferation of signs such as these in our little community. Signs placed where yours truly had heretofore enjoyed fun filled walks across expansive green ways.
No doubt, my fun has been spoiled by insane off leash cracker dogs and owners who do not pick up their doggie's business. But why must I suffer?
|No Dogs Allowed? We'll see about that!|
Why indeed? Because on this particular day, momma caught my sense of living on the edge, seizing the day, and all that nonsense and we breached the forcefield of that sign with only a brief quickening of our hearts lest we be caught out and thrown into the slammer.
Giddy with my new found sense of adventure, I felt compelled to leave a calling card in case some other thrill seeking pup should happen by.
|Dexter was here!|
And once that line has been crossed, my acts of civil disobedience knew no bounds. "What," I wondered, "is beyond these signs that is so precious?"
|Hurry up or they will think we've parked here.|
Why, it is the gigantic aqueduct which runs the relentlessly huge pipe bringing water from out west all the way into Boston!
|Let's keep going! I think this leads to Agatha and Archie's house.|
Oh! And where am I now?
Well, if momma knew the first thing about camera exposure you would have seen behind me this impressive estate.
An estate not one mile from our modest acre. An estate that sports 37 magnificent acres and a manor house to rival Downton Abby. And it is for sale!
I suggested we take a look around. After all, Master is always on the market for a new project house, right?
But this sign caused momma to revert back to her law abiding ways. "Oh, Dexter," she exclaimed, "it is one thing to walk about on public land and feel that one has some entitlement having paid taxes, but it is really bad form to stroll on to private property."
|Come on, Momma, live a little!|
Well, we shall see. I suspect that the more I can encourage her to seek adventure, the closer she will get to allowing me to tour what I believe would make an appropriate estate for my labraself.
And what of my loyal readers? Tell me, do you ever break the rules when out and about?
