- Wedding: March 2013
one of the biggest conflicts fi and I have had is regarding our lovely schnauzer Harold. Now, Im English so for me – dogs live inside. In fact I don’t know anyone who has an outside dog! He’s Mexican and for him – dogs live outside. Always, regardless of weather because its unhygenic to keep them in the house. And he doesnt know anyone who has an inside dog. Im aware that its the norm here (maybe not all in Mexico, but in our neighbourhood certainly) but I think its cruel and I hate it. (I know some bees feel strongly that its cruel to have outdoor dogs but please, don’t think my lovely fi is a bad person – its just been a really alien concept to him)
And now its winter, and raining a lot. And i kept bringing it up,arguing over and over and letting him inside, and finally fi caved. So, instead of living outside in the cold…our lovely dog now has the run of downstairs (fi wouldnt cave on the bedrooms!)/ And everyone is happy. i mean look at this face – who would want him outside? (this is a post hiking pic…so hes a bit bedraggled from swimming and the hike, and in need of getting some spiky seeds out of his beard) Cant make pics smaller sorry!!
