For example, the ones in Las Cruces run in packs. And the dogs in each pack usually look the same. The German Shepherds run with the German Shepherds, the Black Labs with Black Labs, and mutts with mutts. They also stake out their own little territories. For example, every morning I find the three German Shepherds sleeping on the corner outside the old Panadería:
As I get closer to ECIM, the next pack of dogs, including mostly black labs and a random Weimaraner, runs to greet me:
That's not a dog with two tails nor two dogs; it's just the HDR on my camera. Notice the other black lab hanging out by the trash can.
But my favorite group of dogs is this one:
They have claimed the empty lot across from mi casita. There's a third one that's not in this photo because it's usually standing guard at the end of the street. My favorite is the one on the right because of its huge ears. It's also really timid, which I find really sweet. Most of all it's really comforting to have them as neighbors because they greet me when I come home and bark when someone or something is outside. Now if only I could take them all home!
