Monday Mischief: A Message in the Mischief

On our walk this weekend, we noticed these two cars parked at a neighbor's house:
On closer inspection, they had a message for pup owners (or bad boyfriends?):


I'm assuming we have a vet for a neighbor - or someone who is big in rescue. (Or someone who just wants to SNIP SD residents... yikes. Actually... I can think of some folks who... Oh, never mind.) 
Don't know if you can see it very well, but that's a drawing of a dog with a cat on his head on the license plates. California has a special plate that was just announced last September, which helps raise funds for free and low-cost spay and neuter. (Might have to get me one of these next time my registration is due...)

The artwork was done by Pierce Brosnan. Who knew? It's based on his dog, Shilo, and their cat, Angel Baby. You can see the artwork on the license plate and read more about it here, and also see a picture of California's "first dog" - apparently our governor, Jerry Brown, has a corgi! Again - who knew?


Thanks to our neighbors for spreading a good message in a fun way!

Thanks to Snoopy’s Dog Blog, Alfie’s Blog, and My Brown Newfies for hosting Monday Mischief!

  1. I love Pierce Brosnan, but that man CANNOT sing. Cannot. I love the idea of neutering San Diego, though. Or just Deigo. Maybe Dora, too.

    1. I assume you are referring to Mama Mia. Never seen that. I love P.B. but I guess I'll pass on that one. :)

  2. I did know about Brown's dog, but had no idea Pierce Brosnan was an artist and animal lover! I think I'd like your neighbors :-)

  3. Sutter Brown, the governor's dog, has actually taken on some important state duties recently and is a familiar face at the state capital. There are some who would like to give him more power. :-)

    1. I know - love the art. From a distance it looks like a crown on the dog's head. So funny to realize it's a cat when you get up close.

  18. What a great way to raise funds...and hoping your neighbors ARE vets, or heavy into rescue, or something explainable.

    Although . . . I know some people I'd like to neuter too. LOL!

  19. LOL you never know what interesting things you can see and learn on a walk!

  20. Way to make a statement neighbors. Well done. :)

    I love the license plate design. And Pierce Brosnan.

    We have a similar program here in Massachusetts. Our artist is not quite as famous. ;) http://www.massanimalcoalition.com/programs/license-plates/

  21. Ha! Genius plates for a vet or rescue.
    I can only imagine how that conversation went at the DMV. "I'd like you to check to see if a personalized plate is available.... Yes... Neuter... N... E... Yes, that's the one. No, this isn't one of those vanity post-divorce plates. Seriously!"

  22. I had no idea about the license plates, I'll have to let Mum know, what a cool idea! :)

    Hope you're having a fun day

    Your pal Snoopy :)
