Spain, Trains and Planes
By Deborah Taylor-French
Far from home on a business trip, I began snapping photos of dogs on the go. One evening in Madrid dozens of people hurried by. I wondered if Madrid had any dog run parks. Or could this be the hour everyone walked their dogs? Around a corner a triangular city square opened with a few benches. Only a few were letting their dogs socialize. And then, I saw this line. More and more people with dogs keep adding on until the line disappeared around the corner.
The building looked imposing, and unattractive. Words inscribed near the roofline made me guess that I faced a government office.
Next-I felt sorry for the dogs. They were being lined up to get their annual health shots, of course this is a good thing. Kid like, I had expected the dogs might be treated to something enjoyable. Expectations need do not help when traveling. That’s part of the fun of travel, the novel, unplanned, and odd stuff I run into.
I loved seeing how normal it was to see dogs boarding trains. And this little white guy reminded me of our Sydney back in California.

Have a fun weekend!
If you are far from home, would you snap photos of the dogs you see? I would love to share a few on this blog. Just leave a comment so I can connect with you via email.
