Dogs of Pompeii

Dog napping in Pompeii shade

Pompeii dog

There was a surprise in Pompeii that I wasn’t expecting — lots of stray dogs. I love dogs, but it was a little sad to see so many presumably abandoned dogs living off of the kindness of tourists.

There are some folks who are trying to find people to adopt them, but I wonder if some are not really adoptable if they’ve been on their own too long.

I want to see the world! I am armed with the book "1,000 places to see before you die" and I am having a great time. I am also a dog lover and theatre snob.
