Wherever we go, we can’t help but keep an eye out for furry babies to play with. So just for fun, here are some of the cute doggies we’ve met on our travels.
If you’ve been reading my blog, you probably know that we love dogs. Not surprisingly, we seem to bump into a few pretty much wherever we go (probably also because we go looking for them). Some have been friendlier than others, but almost all have found their way into our camera. So here, just for fun, are a whole lot of cute doggies we’ve met on our travels.
