There are dogs everywhere here, these ones are from the streets in Calca - the dogs do have owners, but they live their dog life in the streets, uninhibited by leashes and visits to the dog groomers. They are not spayed and females are often seen heavy with milk although I have not yet seen the pups.
When there is thunder in the air there are benches for immediate security - and by the way, the dogs ignore any and all humans - and the humans ignore any and all dogs, except if the dogs are in the way - then they get shooed away, not many friendly pats to be had.
Taking a rest together, observing pedestrians and waiting for ...... who knows what, table scraps, some other dog to enter their territory so they can have a vigorous chase - I have experienced the view and sound scape of one of these chases which made my heart pound but the perpetrator came away unscathed and when I saw him next he was moping at having had to change his plans of where to go - and he had taken up vigilant position on his part of the street, waiting for the next opportunity to check out the desired area.
And a friendly meet and greet, walking along from each their direction, how are you today, how was your day yesterday, do you have any plans - dog day-cares are not necessary here, they are quite capable of looking after themselves and their social needs.
