Our theory is that these stray dogs feed at night and recover from the bad choices during the day only to repeat it all over again the next night. Their source of food is the garbage and trash piled up for pick up. Trash collection occurs every night. Very few use trash containers and just put their trash out at night along the curb. That means dinner time for the dogs. Even the few dumpsters are like restaurants for them.
So the dogs have hangovers during the day. They sleep anywhere and everywhere and don't seem to be bothered by cars or people.
The pictures tell the story
Some look relatively healthy
And others not so much
And yes, fleas are a problem here. Some missionaries really suffer from flea bites.
Some are cute
Others are not so cute
But mostly they just lie down
Why are you looking at me?
They seem oblivious to anything and everything around them
They seem to like the grass as long as there is room for them
They will snuggle with a bench on the plaza
As long as it is not occupied
They like the sun most of the time
And avoid getting wet in the rain
They are not afraid of being in the middle of the street
Or getting caught in a fish net
And if they don't have a another dog to sleep by they seem to find something
Sometimes they have lots of dog friends
But most of the time they are alone
Hey, what's that cat doing in this dog show?
Sleeping by the shoes.
