Fishing for German Shepherds

Hanoi is a quirky place – you really do see something new every week, if not everyday. As I was cycling home around West Lake I chanced upon a very beautiful German Shepherd seemingly enjoying the rather polluted lake. It’s tough trying to exercise dogs in the city so at least he was getting some exercise.

But on closer inspection I realized he wasn’t just fetching one of the ubiquitous Vietnamese plastic slippers – but rather the slipper was attached to his master’s fishing line. The man seemed pretty pleased with his little set up – no slipper lost – no dog swimming off!

Happily ‘casting’ away for the dog.

If you look closely you can see the fishing line….
