Can't find a larger size, and it's vintage/classic pinup though not necessarily MWD related.

Boche means like an offensive person, say, like a thug. Was also used to refer to the German Soldiers.

De ce chien, éloignez vos pas, means step away from this dog.

Ou vous passerez de vie à trépas, means or you will pass from life towards death.


I'd translate it to something like this so it sounded catchier on a card.

German Soldiers or Wrongs Doers (depending on the context), keep away
If you wish to live another day

I think most of those were dated around 1915. Didn't realize how much WWI popularized the breed in the rest of the world. I thought it was WWII. And crazy that non-German countries were so accepting of a German dog during those years of Germany being the enemy of the world.
