Beware of — What??

Alexandria is fascinated with all things French. We have Le Gaulois Restaurant, La Cuisine kitchen accoutrements, Traditions de France fine home furnishings, and that’s only for starters.

This plaque on a residence in Old Town is another example of Alexandria’s flirtation with French and is a fun twist on the usual Beware of Dog signs. In French, this means “nice dog.”

In August I posted a photo of a Cat Finder sticker I saw on a door in Old Town. Since then, I’ve seen quite a few more for both dogs and cats. What a great idea.

It never fails to delight me when I discover yet more evidence of how dog crazy people in this town are.
