Ferocious guard lions

Rather than put up a fence with a gate, some folks would rather rely on ferocious lions like these to guard their property. Roar!

Haven't seen a pair like this in ages.

These aren't too bad, but someone I know has two large lions on their doorstep; can't help but think that they're somewhat ostentatious.

Your masthead photo of the horse jumping is very dramatic. I saw some hurdlers in the Olympics who probably wish they could tuck their legs underneath them like that while jumping over a hurdle.

Little lions guarding the garage? They want to bite? So small lions are not afraid of nobody. The fence would probably be better. Sincerely, Peter.

Well they sure scared me!! I am running in fear. OMG!

Nice and different scenes from downtown. Do you mean to tell me Christmas stuff is out already. BAD! MB

Having lions at the end of the driveway might seem pretentious, but these are just funny. They are the smallest lions I've seen. Are you sure they aren't just shaggy house cats?

I think you should cruise by as we get closer to the holidays and see if they are adorned with little Santa hats or garlands.

:)) maybe there is a laser beam that runs between them which when tripped raises an alarm! :))
