Buenos Aries Pups

20151026-DSC_0210Aren’t they cute, aren’t they sweet? Nooooo, they are partners in evil plots.

Friend, Lynn, and I are in Argentina for a tour-about. We had just come out of a church and stopped to look around for a place to get a light supper before heading back to our hotel in central Buenos Aries. The white cutie came bouncing up to me and I leaned over to give it a pet. Then the accomplice came bouncing up to distract me. All of a sudden the owner (and the owner of the shop close by) was grabbing at the dogs and yelling. I didn’t know what was going on, but friend Lynn was doubled over laughing. As accomplice had distracted me, the white cutie lifted his leg and peed on my pant and shoe. All the while a policeman is looking on trying not to smile. And where is the law when you need it???

The owner was very repentant and everyone had a good laugh – even the policeman. And there was a wonderful bakery where we bought savory pastries and hot tea to enjoy at a table on the street as the church bells did their evening song and boys practiced football on the street.

  1. Reminds me of the Australian sheep dog, did I mention ‘long haired’ that we had years ago. Just loved to rub up against your leg or what ever part he could find. This act of “affection” was extended to all visitors. A lint roller was kept at the front door! Looking forward to more stories.

    • It definitely was an act of love – but wasn’t appreciated as I travel light. Maybe a little “sibling rivalry” – a dog’s way of saying I got here first! I guess I should be glad the other dog didn’t get my other leg.
