A Picture's Worth A Thousand Words

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.

Yep, I agree, he looks innocent. But then again, so do the people sitting in the defendant box in the court house. Just sayin..

Now that is funny!

Say hi to my very best friend Nutsy please. Tell him I am working hard, not much time to be in the 'rain and I miss him.

It's funny how the pets always try to sneak into the photos.  Our photographer tells funny stories of pets trying to get in the listing photographs!

Steen, bad dog!  Bad dog!  Willie the Labradoodle would never do anything like this!

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.
