In a way, I think this post’s title, Dog & Cemetery, could be a pub’s name in a cosy.
Passing one today, I saw again the rusted and bent blue and white ‘Dogs Are Not Permitted in Cemetery’ sign. And again wondered, why? Do pooches offend the cemetery owners? Were there fears that a dog might dig up bones or soil a grave?
In an area of deer, squirrels, opossums, rabbits, rats, raccoons, cats, bears, coyotes and the occasional wolf and mountain lion, it seems odd to single out ‘man’s best friend’ as being unwanted at man’s final resting place.
