A Picture's Worth A Thousand Words

By
Home Inspector with King of the House Home Inspection, Inc

We have all heard the expression -- "A Picture's Worth a Thousand Words."  Every once in awhile, on an inspection, there is a photo-op that turns out to be quite amusing. Often, for whatever reason, the photos, at least in my case, involve some pet that decides to help me out while I am on-site with my camera.

I think, even if this guy is innocent (or not) the photo is pretty funny with the  report text. 

The weatherstripping on the garage-house door is shredded, suspected pet damage. Recommend replacing the weatherstripping so the door seals when shut.

I have to say I see this all the time.  And the higher the damage, the bigger the dog! 

That's probably a metaphor for something...

Its clear to me the dog is an innocent victim of stereotyping. Poor fella was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Nice post.
