APRIL 2008: Puppy dogs
In Curitiba, capital of the state of Paraná, you can visit a large-scale open air fair in the center on Sundays. Hundreds of stalls offer a wide diversity of handicraft, utensils, local art, food and drinks. You can meet interesting souvenirs and hand-made decorations for reasonable prices. It is not uncommon to bargain about the price. That Sunday, I spent several hours there, wandering along the stalls, taking pictures, and paying closer looks at eye-catching objects. What also caught my eye, were these two Golden Retriever pups. They were kept in a large plastic box, and they were looking so cute, with a kind of humble expression that must have melted many hearts. When I took this picture, the dogs received attention of two different people who didn’t resist stroking their soft, light brown fur. I really hope that these pups have found a good home and have lived a good dog’s life.
