Dutch people walk their dogs. Most of them multiple times/day. Regardless of the weather. I walk my dogs once/day as long as it's not pouring rain. Dogs are even allowed in some stores and restaurants. Restaurants will bring a water bowl for them.
|My dogs waiting outside the grocery store (where they are not allowed).|
Some places about town have what I call "fixture dogs" because they're just part of the place.
|This friendly one hangs out outside a clothing store. I believe s/he belongs to someone who works there. S/he's never on a leash but I've never seen her cause any trouble.|
|She always comes to say hello to my dogs.|
|This dog seems to live in the store-front of this art...I'm not sure exactly what this place is. I've never seen it open but there's art in there. When I ride past on my way to work in the morning the dog is always asleep right there in the window.|
This morning we walked to the grocery store and it rained on our way back. Tex was born and spent his first 1.5 years on Phoenix, AZ where he never got wet. He still hates getting wet. Cheyenne very sweetly dried him off when we got back.
Feel free to head over to Unknown Mami and check out all the other Sundays in My City posts. Next week, I promise, no dogs :)
|Normally it's Tex taking care of Cheyenne but he really hates being wet!|
