Tala surveys the off-leash crowd

Hanoi hosted its first ever dog show last weekend.  The show was still in a very nascent phase and perhaps would be best described as a dog fair/get together, although it is still a step in the right direction in terms of people hopefully becoming more knowledgeable about how to care, train and socialize dogs. Having said that there were still some worrying issues for example why people are bringing potentially aggressive dogs to a dog fair with lots of other dogs and young children. A number of men had break sticks in their back pockets – I wasn’t sure whether to find this reassuring or concerning – probably the latter.
