Everyone Loves Little Dogs

Tokyo is too small for golden retrievers and labs. Instead, we're overrun with chihuahuas and dachshunds and other dogs that from afar more closely resemble large rats. But how they are loved. Above, two policemen spend about 5 minutes playing with the blue-jeaned man's little poodle, getting it to dance on two legs. (Alas, you can only see the dog's tail in the photo.) You know you're living in a safe country when policemen aren't even feeling like they have to be pretending to work.

If you have three tiny rat-dogs, that would add up to one cocker spaniel.
