Why is Honey Sad? Wordless Wednesday

Honey, why do you look so sad?

Sad Golden Retriever


Oh, I see.

Honey the Golden Retriever is not allowed in the park.

  1. Poor Honey,

    Sometimes good doggies are punished because bad doggie owners aren’t responsible. I know that is NOT how it works in the dog world, but sadly the world is not run by dogs.

  2. Don’t you just HATE THAT!!???

    Ohhhh this makes me soooooooooooo angry!

    We have a number of GORGEOUS parks near our home that display the same sign.

    I think it should say “No KIDS allowed” instead!

    • My town feels particularly un-dog friendly. The lake front park and the downtown pedestrian mall are also off limits.

      The crazy thing is that none of these places have rare, delicate plants or wildlife that needs protection. The lake front park is nearly unwalkable because of the goose poop. Not sure what they’re worried about.

      I guess Honey and I will just go into exile with the alcoholics and smokers, looking for a place to hang out. :)

      • Has someone pointed out to them that the dogs would keep the geese away?

        In the early days, when there were both dogs and geese, someone probably assumed the goose poop was people not picking up after their dogs. Then they got dogs banned, and then the geese took completely over.

        • I have read long diatribes in the paper where people complained about the dog poop in the park before someone pointed out that the geese are to blame.

          Interestingly, the golf course that borders the park has put up fake coyotes to scare the geese away.

  3. That no dog rule needs to change, it’s completely unfair!

  4. You don’t want to be some where you’re not wanted.

  5. Hi i just hopped over on the blog hop. I’d ignore the sign and say dogs can’t read.


    • In the winter we cross the barrier across the golf course road because the sign has a picture of a German Shepherd with a cross through it. Honey’s not a German Shepherd so I figured it doesn’t apply to her.

      I’d be afraid to tell the policeman who came to fine me for walking Honey through the park that she can’t read. After all, everyone knows how smart Golden Retrievers are. :)

  6. Aww, poor Honey! How could anyone not allow her in? She’s so adorable!

  7. That’s a shame. Sometimes it feels as though there are a lot of people who don’t like dogs at all.

  8. Woof! Woof! I’ll be sad too. It looks like such a beautiful park not to allow dogs. Happy WW. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  9. I don’t know what makes me more sad, the lack of booze or the lack of dogs. Any space that disallows both is probably not a space in which I will be found!

  10. Well that doesn’t look like a very fun park!

  11. Oh my gosh, all of the comments are too funny. A park just isn’t a park without dogs! (& booze)!

  12. Poor girl – that is so unfair!


  13. No alcoholic beverages?! What will the peoples do? Oh, you mean you are sad that there is no dogs allowed? I bet that park stinks anyway and you can find a much better one to go to.

    Honey, if you need cheering up, you would be happy to know my peoples showed me their latest Dog Fancy Magazine and on page 4 there is a dog that looks EXACTLY like you! See – you are famous. Or at least your doppelganger is. :-)

  14. I just don’t get it! Doggies are not the problem! Punish the owners.

  15. How rotten!

  16. Well that’s enough to make anyone sad. What kind of a park has a crazy rule like THAT?

  17. Oh Honey, it’s just not right! Bunny would say that she’s no common dog, and thus should be allowed to pass through. Perhaps you should just tell them you don’t know how to read…

  18. That’s not fair…I’ll never understand it. When we lived in NYC, I was not allowed on the grass…what’s the point of walking on the sidewalk and missing all the good stuff to sniff on the grass?

  19. No dogs? How rude :(

    Stop on by for a visit

  20. Whenever I see a No Dogs Allowed sign, I have to sing the phrase “Snoopy Come Home” style… :)
