    Do you pet random dogs on the street? No? Then you won’t have any problems with Dingoes. Drop Bears on the other hand…

      There are countries where all dogs have owners (mostly on the other side of the leach) and you are always supposed to ask the owners before you pet them.

      And then there are countries blessed with really cute street dogs that tend to turn tummy up when you’re passing them. You’re supposed to pet those randomly.

          The kind with the cute doggies that let you pet them all the time?

          Don’t ruin my hopes and dreams.

        Communal care of stray dogs. Everybody is supposed to feed and pet them, and usually they crash at any random place.

        My country was the type with packs of street dogs that you had to keep your distance from and that you saw on the news from time to time for mauling another passerby

        One of my saddest days was waiting to cross a road and a car stopped Infront of me with it’s passenger window open and a big Labrador hopped up and was face to face with me.

        I excitedly asked the owner if I could pet the dog, as it was literally delivered to my face and she said no like it was a weird request. Thats stuck with me for half a decade already.
