Ailsa’s theme this week is ‘dogs’. Here’s her link
Santiago, Chile has lots of homeless dogs. I stopped and chatted to a fair number of them during my visit and I found them to be friendly, welcoming and bilingual. Yes, that is correct. They seemed to understand both Spanish and english 🙂
This friendly homeless dog welcomed me on my first day. He was ever so polite and gave me some terrific pointers on my map.
This one I met in a park. We sat in the sunshine together and I told him all about my trip. He listened intently.
I met these three at the B&B where we were staying.
I asked the owner their names and he replied, “Oh, they’re homeless dogs. I brought them in, gave them a bath then let them chill on my couch”.
Apparently that’s the norm in Santiago. Look after the homeless dogs.
What an awesome city 🙂
