anjing bagus #1

"Anjing bagus" means "good dog" in Indonesian. In Maine speak it would be a "wicked good dog". There are so many dogs here in Bali and they are all about the same size (medium), short hair, pointy ears though the direction varies—both up, one up/one down, both down and some are sideways, pointed nose and they range in every color and pattern imaginable. Sad, but true, some have better lives than others. They are either sleeping anywhere and everywhere or they are very busy doing what Balinese dogs do. This sweet little guy belongs to the family who owns the little warung (food stall) at the end of the street. They also have an older dog and a few chickens along with an assortment of drinks and snacks. I probably won't eat there.

Ah come on. Some of our greatest restaurants have cockroaches and rats. What harm can a dog do? This one is sooo cute.

Obviously you are missing your own dog-such feeling you put into this random pooch sketch!

Oh Jennifer, so good to hear from you, and so excited you will be able to share some of your adventure with us. What a cute dog, the eyes say it all. Don't get too attached, Sophie will be jealous! And yes you are missing a great NE Autumn, but don't worry there will be more!!
