Grateful for the more liberal dog policies in Europe which have taught me that Mia and Cooper should be coming a lot more places with me.  This is a lady having her hair done at a train station and I can just about guarantee that she and her dog arrived on the train – it is rare to not see a dog on a suburban train.

Grateful for the wonderful work of the Royal Society for the Blind – but then again how can you not love an organisation that not only helps people with disabilities but also supplies them with dogs?  I read an article (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/05/magazine/wonder-dog.html?_r=1&pagewanted=all#commentsContainer) about a being used in quite a different situation.  It is really amazing what dogs can do.

Take one dirty/muddy Samoyed.  Allow to dry.  Now you have a clean Samoyed!

Grateful for the wonders of the self-cleaning Samoyed.

Now to find a Samoyed who will not jump about while you try to take their photo …
