|Me and Diablo|
The dogs here are fed reasonably well, with some exceptions. Diablo was a wild dog living off of whatever he could find in the streets. We officially adopted him, and he is slowly putting on weight. He's a typical Mexican dog, long ears, long legs, long tail and not very bright! Oh well, we love him anyway. We don't see many cats. I talked to a friend here and, he said that Mexicans like the affection that dogs give. Most cats don't give that same kind of affection. That seemed like a believable explanation.
Well, the bottom line is that, in general, Mexicans don't treat their pets as well as we Americans do. They seem to see them more as objects rather than live beings. Us Americans see them as part of our family. But, keep in mind, where we live, the residents don't have much spending money. They're going to spend money on their family before they spend the money on pets. We Americans would do the same thing if we were a third world country. Adios, Ken
