Fantastic stories. I'm not even a fan of dogs, and enjoyed every one. My heart melted when I hit that photo. I can see why you let them tag along with you.

very good article. Thanks. Besides the main bit about the dogs, it made me regret not having the experience of joining the Peace Corps when I wanted to, years ago. Ironically, it was my dog that kept me here. Anyway, I think you should do more "when I was in the Peace Corps" stories...

Not to repeat what everyone else has said...

Great article, Matt. Since you wrote the article too well to have fallen into the trap of stating the obvious, would you mind clarifying for me that the caption of the photo of "your" dogs, Huckleberry and Dandelion, clearly should have included "RIP?"

Very nice. You should try writing more often.

That was fantastic, Matt.
I've been a Yeti reader for about a year now, and this is exactly why.
You're fantastic.
And I'm absolutely stealing the name Huckleberry for any future dog who enters my life.

Great story. I was in the Peace Corps, Morocco ('94 - '96) and they have a similar view on dogs. A friend of mine in the village I lived in had a dog named Linda and from what he told me that name is the Moroccan equivalent of Rover or Spot. He used to tease me about how foreigner's treat their dogs by pretending to cuddle it.

In my country, we also see many dogs in the street, but not as many as in Tupiza, as they over grown, they must be funished, that's a bad way, but they must do it anyway..
