"Not My Dog"


On the weekend I was out at the farthest west part of Queen St West, in Parkdale, (looking for more bike stands) when I noticed this cool sign of a dog's head. It turns out that it marks the location of a little local bar/restaurant called "Not My Dog" which apparently is a cozy place with local art and photography on the walls and which features live music too. I have never been there but it seems that they have a nice patio out back in the summer so I think a visit is in order next summer!

Cool sign!
I'd like to visit this place and check the photos on the walls. ;-)

I don't understand signs you can't understand - one has no idea what business they're in by their sign.

Lowell said...

That looks kinda like a mean dog so perhaps that's why the place is called "Not My Dog"?

I agree with Paul. People are funny.

But, this reminds me of a place in Eustis, Florida that I wrote about on Florida Fotos. It certainly would be worth checking out. Woof!

If you are buying the beer I'll be there (:-0)

I wonder if the name is an homage to the scene from the Pink Panther Strikes Back?

A do showing only the top of its head? I can identify with that. Sounds like a neat bar.

'Not my dog' conveniently tucked between Thai and Szechuan.

That is a cool sign.

I like the minimalist design. I hope you wind up going.

I'd like to check out their art work. Cool sign!

Looks like the dog in question is peeping over the top of the bar!

Sharon said...

What a great sign and a wonderful name for the bar.

Pat said...

I think it's clever advertising. People see just the photo of the dog and wonder what kind of place that is so they go check it out.

JM said...

Judging from the very cool sign, it must be a great place.

Halcyon said...

Maybe we can arrange a bloggers meeting there this summer? Looks and sounds like a fun place!
