Vancouverites love their dogs
Some visitors from Australia remarked two things about Vancouver: one, everyone appeared remarkably healthy and fit. Two, Vancouverites really love dogs.
Parts of downtown (notably Yaletown) seem almost dominated by pugs and puggles (beagle-pug mix) and French bulldogs. I saw an attractive woman slow down her car just to scream out that she thought a young man's dog was the cutest freaking thing in the world.
I don't even think the dog owner registered in her field of vision, and he seemed a little bummed that she only had eyes for his cute puppy. Another time, a woman basically shoved a two-year-old kid out of the way to ogle a cute Yorkshire terrier in a handbag.
But what can you do? People in Vancouver love their dogs.
