We all have to get creative these days with how we spend our spare time because everything we used to do for fun is closed for the foreseeable future.
I’m talking about concerts, sporting events, movies, etc. It’s a shame but for now, we just have to deal with it, right?
And a guy named Brian Stanley has been doing something I consider to be very worthwhile. Much to the delight of his neighbors, Stanley started The Dog Fence, which is exactly what it sounds like, but it’s a helluva lot of fun!
Stanley makes awesome, pop-culture influenced cardboard posters for his fence that also feature holes so his dogs, Burger and Ripley, can poke their heads through and make the whole neighborhood laugh!
Every few weeks, he updates the fence and shows off his artistic abilities. And it’s really a ton of fun!
Take a look at Stanley’s handiwork. We think you’ll be very impressed.

We started during the pandemic shutdown with "The Bark" and followed that up with "Paws" which is our version of the iconic movie poster. From there we did a fun Uncle Sam sign and then insulted Vermeer (lol) by doing "The Dog with the Bone Earring". After, there was another iconic movie poster with "Jurassic Bark". Currently hanging on the fence is Pacman! All of the above are acrylic and wood paintings. Pacman, so far, is the only one not in 2d. Pacman is built in multiple pieces to add depth and give it a more 3d look. We hope you like them because there are more coming!! @buzzfeedanimals @buzzfeed @kellyclarksonshow @iheartdogscom
