Stray Dogs

montevideo dogs
Montevideo is a city of dogs, well, dog lovers. I hardly see small
dogs, mostly big dogs and you have to remember that most if not all of
the people that live in my end of city live in apartments.

So, the last place I lived, Jeddah (Saudi Arabia), was full of stray
cats, everywhere, cats.

Here, I rarely see a stray cat, maybe once since I've been here, but
dogs on the other hand, everyday. Unfortunately most of the stray dogs
I see have collars. Why is that? Because about 90% of the people with
dogs "walk" their dogs without leashes. I'll give them kudos for well
behaved dogs, but it's that 10% which haven't learned that walk away and
don't come back.

Book Corner - Finished Reading

straight into darkness
Straight Into Darkness by Faye Kellerman
418 pages

In typical Doc Report book reporting fashion I can say that this wasn't
the best book I've read, but not necessarily the worst. It's about a
series of murders in Germany between the wars. It's pretty easy to get
lost in the different characters in the book. By the end of the book, I
was completely lost, thought I would be surprised at the revealing of
the killer, only I couldn't remember when this person was even
mentioned, LOL.

There is a movie by the same name, but it's not related to the book.
