strange dogs

here is a good picture of dog. is it a sign for dogs, about dogs or told by a dog ? can you trust a dog to tell you about strangers ? has the man in black got a dog’s head ? is he just a shadow ? are the children strangers (or do they know each other). the sign just contributes to confusion in my opinion.

whatever it means, it does contain a nice detailed picture of a dog:
