The kindness of neighboursPosted: June 11, 2014
I must have looked a bit suspicious standing on the side of the street scribbling in a notebook. So suspicious that the owner of the house approached to find out if I was some sort of town inspector fining her for leaving these bowls by the curb. But the story is that after walking by this arrangement for many days I just had to carry my sketchbook on a dog walk and stop to record it. Last year I noticed the bowl of water for thirsty dogs and this spring there’s a new addition of a bowl of cookies. Let me correct that — a fine selection of cookies. Along with a bit of advertising, I guess due to recent scares of tainted dog treats. These bowls go in at night and come back out in the morning with fresh water and a new choice of treats. This may be a common sight in your neighbourhood but not in mine!
