Welsh Bar’s ‘Divorce’ Sign Now Says ‘Keeping The Dog’

UPLANDS, Wales (UPI) — A Welsh bar that posted a sign on behalf of a woman who wanted to tell her husband she was divorcing him changed the sign again to say she is “keeping the dog.”

Noah’s Yard in Uplands, which has a history of changing its sign to give special messages, put up the words “Paul… I am divorcing you” on the exterior of the building during the weekend and the sign was changed Tuesday to read “BTW I am keeping the dog,” using the “BTW” text-speak for “by the way,” the South Wales Evening Post reported Tuesday.

The woman, who asked to remain anonymous, said she asked Noah’s Yard to change the sign during the weekend to publicly shame her husband for his alleged infidelity.

“I was angry and upset so wanted a sign to go up for everyone to see,” she said. “When I found out I went through a mixture of emotions but felt angry and wanted him to pay. I had a drink in the bar on Tuesday and decided to get my own back. We have been married for years and it is so sad it has come to this. I am absolutely devastated and going through a really tough time at the moment. A lot of my friends and family have seen it and have been supporting me. I did feel a bit better once the sign went up. I wanted to name and shame him.”

It was not certain Tuesday that the dog-themed sign was a request from the same woman, the Evening Post said.
