For Dog Lovers Only - The Dogs Of Buenos Aires

Our dog Cholo back home

C'mon smile for the pretty lady

Hat dawg!

Junk yard dogs

I saw only one Cav King Charles

"Pinky" is the name of this store mascot

One of the famous dog walkers of Buneos Aires

How cute is this

The Maltese is a very popular breed in Buenos Aires

This sign is for real - a doggie eye doctor!

Street dogs in La Boca

After one week in Buenos Aires we started to really, really miss our dog Cholo.
Buenos Aires loves its dogs. Big ones, little ones, muts, pure breds, so we got to get some doggy love.
Hundreds of dog walkers are employed to walk apartment dwelling dogs during the day while their owners are at work. Hundreds of pet stores, vets, dog washing parlors, along with the usual dog departments in grocery stores and big box stores, put porteños right up there with Americans in the doggie love category.
Dogs are allowed nearly everywhere. It's okay to have them in the outdoor section of any cafe or restaurant, and you can often persuade them to let you take a tote bag size small dog into the restaurant itself.
Woof. We're coming home soon Cholo.
