Husbands only!

            We spotted this doghouse on the way to a plate lunch at Johnson’s Boucaniere in downtown Lafayette, Louisiana. It sports a sign, "Private Property, no trespassing!"
             Got us wondering who would want — or be brave enough — to trespass on a doghouse. Not to mention be small enough to fit inside! The rooftop hits an average person about shoulder high. Maybe there’s a problem with transient dogs in the downtown Lafayette area who can read?
            But in case you’re wondering what lunch we enjoyed, since Lafayette is one of the nation’s top foodie towns, Johnson’s Boucaniere’s cuisine consists of delicious meats they smoke out back. They are famous for their boudin (pronounced boo-dan), including a boudin sandwich between locally produced Evangeline Bread that’s to die for. We enjoyed the smoked meat salad — trying to be healthy — that featured smoked pulled pork atop a bed of lettuce, sweet cherry tomatoes, cheese, chopped onions and a special sauce that tied things together beautifully.
             So maybe the dogs in the neighborhood come for the meats, and become so full of goodness pass out in the doghouse.
     Or maybe it’s a sign to neighborhood wives that this doghouse is reserved for one particular husband.
