..After having seen countless injured stray dogs in Central America, it has been a relief to discover that dogs are treated much better in Thailand! Stray dogs here live in the Buddhist temples and are fed by the monks, and actual pets are treated like little kings and queens! Now that the temperatures have dropped from 100F to 80 – 90F (the Thai version of winter), many dog owners dress their little darlings in dog shirts and even shoes, and we regularly see dogs being driven around in strollers which seem to have been bought specifically for the dogs. Poodles are particularly popular in Thailand, often styled like princesses with ribbons and bows, as in the picture above.
