homeless dogs, dressed real nice

We couldn't help but notice the packs of wild dogs running around in Chiang Mai. Our friends said it's quite a problem for early morning joggers. We also couldn't help but notice that many of these homeless dogs actually wear clothes.

Turns out that it's a tradition of the Thai people to dress dogs up in their cast off clothing. So you see dogs running around in shirts of various qualities and colors. We saw one yesterday wearing an American flag handkerchief.

I have to say, this is yet another reason to really love Thailand.
