Is the furry one coming?
I’ve written and re-written this post several times, was too long for my liking and I know once I’m done is gonna be too long but probably not as sad or critical as before because I’ll cover it with my adventure.
Jodi and 2 Brown Dwags have mentioned on previous posts what people do with their dogs when they travel or move them around the city.
As most of you know I’m currently in Seville, I said it was a great place to take your dog with you to bars and restaurants because nobody seems to mind to have a dog around. Those kind of things as a society are great, however, there is a huge issue during summer with dogs being left behind by
their owners. Some lucky dogs are left at parks or restaurants and others not so lucky left in the middle of the high way or tied to a tree at a gas station in the middle of nowhere. It has become so much of a deal that there’s even a campaign called “El nunca lo haria. No lo abandones” which literally means “He would never do it. Do not abandon him”. Stray dogs are not common in here, so it’s very likely that if you see a dog roaming alone it’s because it has been abandoned, specially during summer.
As for me, this year traveling far won’t be happening because Doggy is too little to take him on a long trip and by long I mean going across the ocean, so instead I’m gonna take a week off and walk “El Camino de Santiago” or “The Way of St. James” I’ve asked the vet and he said it’s ok to take Doggy, we’ll do about 100-120 miles in a week. Accommodation and commuting is proving to be a bitch, but we’ll get there somehow.
