These are the dogs that have been around my house for the last week. When we first moved here, the hardest thing I had to get used to is the amount of dogs that run free. I have only seen 1 cat since I moved here, and that is a housecat . I must admit, it's nice to walk outside and not worry about stepping in cat poo or hear a cat fight at night. Even though dogs run free here, I have never seen dog poop anywhere, and very seldom do you hear them bark. The dogs are beautiful and for the most part quite friendly. It's when I see dogs as beautiful as this guy I waver a bit in my opinion of "No, I don't want a dog". I could literally go outside, start feeding this guy and he'd be ours. The downside? What do we do when we go home? These dogs will not come inside at all, even in the dead of winter. I would have a hard time knowing my dog is outside in the middle of a snowstorm at -50. Connie and David have a husky, who looks exactly like "Demon" in 8 below. I haven't had a chance to photograph him yet, but I plan to. I took the above picture from my livingroom window this morning.
