Dogs from our balcony

Jeff and I see these dogs to our right every morning as we sit on our balcony drinking coffee.

These dogs are waiting while their dog walker picks  up another dog.


If we look to the left we see these dogs waiting for their dog walker.

And in case you’re wondering, here is how it works when one has to go to the bathroom.  All the rest wait while one goes in the street.

The white dog gets in trouble every day for being on the wall. Then if the 2nd beagle is in tow (sometimes he stays home) all hell breaks loose.

The white dog always looks like he wants to be with the other group.

But then he seems to get over it when his walker arrives.


(apologies for the music on this video.  I was bad mouthing the dog walker, so I needed to cover that up.)

And that’s only on our side of the street. Here’s what’s going on across the street.

  1. Sheryl,

    I’m having so much fun reading about your adventure! I loved the dog walking… they look like they should be pulling a sled!!

    1. Thanks Lori! I just checked out your blog love it!!! Love your veggie post. After being a vegetarian for 13 years, I’m going overboard the other way now. 🙂

  2. Was that guy seriously on his cell phone while he is walking that huge group of dogs? Now that is a professional!
    Sheryl, do I see a career change in the near future? This looks like it could be very lucrative!! 🙂

  3. Hilarious! I really wanted to hear your commentary. Does anyone walk their own dog there? Oh, and somehow I have a feeling the dog poop gets left on the road. I stumbled many times on it in London, Nice and Barcelona. I truly appreciated our scoop law after those experiences.

    1. I felt like he wasn’t petting the dogs enough and was saying it on the video. The woman looks like she pets her dogs more. People walk their dogs at night and weekends. The dog walkers seems to be only for the week days. Dog pop is everywhere. Our poo-dar is quite high when we’re walking.

  4. Love this post.. just stumbled over from Expat blog directory. I’m over in Santiago! When I was in BA for 3 months, this was one of my favorite things. Aren’t they all so well behaved!?
