What he said

Food, fun and intimidation.

Those themes sum up what readers thought high-perching deck dog Charlie Machete was saying in this picture.

Thanks to everyone who commented on Friday’s post and suggested what our foster dog could be saying to the world beyond his awesome, new deck.

Here are my three favorite interpretations. Click the pics to see them in full-size.

From Bassas Blog – a munchies-related remark that seems to grow out of another meaning of the headline “Dogs getting high”:

From I Love Schnauzers – a strategic hunting plot emerges:

From Our Waldo Bungie – the classic warning of a watchdog overseeing his family territory:

You can also find these speech bubble pics over on the Wayward Dogs fan page on Facebook.

Feel free to download the original image and meme it up yourself. I used my Google+ account for meme-ification.

If you’d like Charlie Machete to become your loving companion and guardian of your yard, check out his Adoptable profile. He’s available for adoption through Midwest Adopt-a-Bull.

Come back tomorrow for a special guest post that’s all about guard dogs and what kind of dogs are recommended by an actual home security company.

I live with two formerly wayward dogs. I care deeply about the environment, and I think gardening is a revolutionary act.

  1. Great captions! I do think that Boomer and Dottie believe they are guarding our house and yard. They bark their heads off at anything that’s out of place such as the time Boomer barked for what seemed like forever at a truck that was parked on the street or when Dottie paws and scratches up the windowsill and the window to get out at other dogs passing by.

  2. Great captions there. I think Bassa said it best…:-)

  3. Absolutely, from someone knocking at the door to a leaf blowing across the yard…lol

    Great captions for Charlie Machete 🙂

    I can’t wait to read your post tomorrow!!

  4. Very good captions, Thanks for printing mine 🙂
