I’ve decided to start a new feature here on this blog: Around The World. I realized I have so many photos that have similar themes, even though they’re taken all over the world.
I thought for the first of the batch I would start with something that everyone (well, all those with a soul, at least) love: puppies. When doing a quick scan of my 61,705 photos from the past six and a half years of travel (and by quick scan I mean it took me an hour to find 8 photos), I found dozens of photos of me or a travelling partner holding or posing with dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, and a menagerie of other creatures. What can I say? I’m a sucker for animals, especially dogs. Kerri has even called me “The Dog Whisperer”, because it seems as though whenever there’s a stray dog within a kilometre radius, it finds me and becomes my best friend. I just can’t help but take them under my wing, when I’m on the road or at home. And yes, I have my rabies shots, and no, I’ve never been bitten or hurt.
Do you have any suggestions for me for this new feature? What would you like to see photos of?

That are some cute puppies.

You should visit China, they have lots of cool dogs there everywhere. And they don’t even eat them all the time, only sometimes.
