They're a little heavy on the dogs, but bouncy dogs are just more fun to photograph than takling people. :)

BTW, off topic:

New York the politest city in the world? Get outta here!

IT IS the city where eye contact is considered an act of aggression and the most frequently used part of a car is the horn.

But New York is the most polite place in the world, according to a survey which ranked its famously brusque citizens well ahead of those in London in kindness and good manners.

The Big Apple scored 80 per cent in a series of tests, including dropping papers in a street in a busy area, seeing how long it took for someone to help, noting whether doors were held open and if shop assistants said thank you after making a sale.

[...]

Zurich came second, Toronto third and São Paulo, Brazil, tied for fourth with Berlin.

[...]

...the second rudest city was Bucharest.

It was in Bucharest that one woman, on refusing to hold open a door, told researchers: "I'm not a doorman, it's not my job to hold doors, if someone gets hurt they should be quicker."

Hey, that's what I was going to blog about tomorrow. You're stealing my ideas.

The dog photos are great.
