Dog on a Roof
Where have you spotted one?
Shea checks out the neighborhood from on high.

A few blocks from my house, I saw a dog up on the roof. Shea was not atop a dog house, like Snoopy, but some 15 feet off the ground on the roof of a people house. She looked comfortable up there, and though it made me a little nervous, I didn’t feel as though she was in immediate danger.

 
Racing home for my camera, I thought, “Please don’t come down until I get the photo, please don’t get down until I get the photo.” She was still there minutes later when I returned. A woman then came out of the house and told me that I was not the first person to take a picture of Shea, who loved to be up on the roof and regularly spent time up there.
 
This has got to be one of the most unusual places I have ever seen a dog, but I suspect that even odder locations have been observed by others. In what weird or unexpected places have you seen a dog?
