dogs are more than welcome all over the city. people bring them to parks, lunch, grocery shopping, etc. like they’re children, and that is perfectly fine by me. i can’t help but smile every time i see one. i’d say i’m one step beyond an animal lover.
this one came in and sat beside us in a cafe.
these are “Albert pups,” which are commonly seen outside (or inside) Albert Heijn grocery stores. notice the wall has hooks for leashes. just inside the front doors you’ll find something similar for when the weather is cold.
in Sarphatipark and quite good at retrieving a stick
and this little guy was at Noordwijk
this is a very small sampling, but i can’t very well walk around photographing puppies all day (though i’d love to).
