straw dogs.

While riding roads of Thai villages, it’s impossible not to note ragged dogs dotting the winding path. Often, they prop their thin bodies in the middle of the road, rarely moving for anyone or anything, including my motorbike.

I found out the hard way they don’t like to be pet. Some have something along the lines of an owner, some food or water here and there, but they live in the streets. Most are alone, guarding their small section of territory.

These are the straw dogs. And these some photos I took of the ones that didn’t run away.

Since I'm blogging under a firewall and have to use proxy servers to post anything, this soundslider may not embedd or work properly. If it doesn't, maybe this will...
