Let sleeping dogs lie

There are lots of stray dogs living on the streets of Argentina and Chile; mostly very content and adding to the colourful street life. They sleep anywhere they can during the hot summer days only occasionally adopting a backpacker, walking alongside them, in the hope of food.

As man’s oldest friend, it’s interesting how dogs (like cats and horses) assume different characteristics according to how each nationality treats them.

“Italian” dogs are used mostly to guard properties and “British” dogs are indulged as pets, whilst these dogs are left to live and let live, which maybe sums up the Argentinian and Chilean approach to life.
