Altavista Translator says "odd dog." That doesn't actually translate as rabid or anything, does it?

It's simply "odd," far as I know. Or "strange."

As with being truly intelligent, when you're naturally odd, there's no need to advertise.

And no, that isn't my sign. Gregg took the shot in the Venice Canals while doing some research.

I should get one for my apartment that says, "chat étrange."

or 'une chien andalou'

They have those - the cat thing. Probably the Bunuel one also. Paris: rue de Buci between rue de Seine and rue Mazarine, place on the side closest to Blvd. St. Germain. While you're there, have a drink at Bar du Marché, au coin (at the corner), and watch the world go by, chats, chiens, and slinky girls on their bicycles.

See, I love that, but I'm a self-conscious Francophile that way. And the sign on our door would say, "Attention: chiennes paresseuses."

This reminds me of the joke that ends:
"Pretentious? Moi?"

Love that, Buster.

And for you non-Francophiles, paresseuses, means lazies. Lazy girl dogs, I'm guessing.

My dog Lucy is a vain little thing.

We used to have that sign (looked just like that one) up at our barn. We put it up there for Mushu the Rottweiler who spent all her time guarding a spider.
