Happy Dog Story

Two days ago I posted a photo of a dog who had been missing for several days. I am pleased to report that the owner, who lives in Playa Grande, yesterday was reunited with her dog, Cooper. A friend who lives in Matapalo found the dog.

Since I already posted photos of Cooper the day before yesterday, I am posting another dog photo today. This German shepherd hangs out at the El Crocodilo Restaurant.

Besides having very good food and being located at the far end of Tamarindo Beach, near the estuary, El Crocodilo is a remarkable restaurant because there is a little pond behind the restaurant and, as the name implies, there is a crocodile in the pond. The crocodile must be tame, or as tame as a crocodile can be, because he does not bother anyone. After a meal, you can walk behind the restaurant to the edge of the pond and look out and often see the crocodile floating at the far side of the pond. Obviously this dog is not worried about the crocodile either. He has his back to the pond.

Today is Sunday, so we have new photos posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. This week we have a special treat -- a view of Tanzania's Ngorongoro Crater and portraits of the Maasi. My wife likes to take "people pictures" when we travel to exotic lands. This week's photos illustrate why.

I'm happy for the lost dog who found its owner. I don't know if I could trust even a tame crocodile enough to turn my back on it!

I wonder what sort of crocodile is in that pond - probably what Australians call a "freshie", fresh water crocs who don't see men as preys because they only attack smaller animals such as poultry, birds, rats etc.

Great story anyway !
