Considering that retiring from veterinary medication in 2017, Ive had more time to pursue my favored leisure activities: travel and photography. The pandemic has actually made travel more challenging but not hard. In October of 2021, I finally marked off a significant item on my container list: a journey to Peru.
What I didnt prepare for was a lot of animals! In every city, on nearly every street, I saw pet canines roaming, snoozing and playing.
In the Miraflores area of Lima, while walking along the Malecon, I saw a person tending to his 3 treasured Chihuahuas. I asked if I might take a photo, and they obediently presented on the wall overlooking the Pacific.
In Aguas Caliente, where Machu Picchu lies, I found a charming Peruvian Inca Orchid, the nationwide animal of Peru. A young family pet canine befriended me, following me inside the shop. I got my everyday family pet canine fix, and the owner made a sale.
While walking the Cusco streets as dusk approached, I found an animal sleeping by a door, under a rack of handmade bags and tassels. The dog barely opened an eye as I bent to his level and snagged my image, with the dynamic dining establishment in the background.

My preferred location was Cusco, an attractive town with captivating cobblestone streets, whimsical shops and excellent dining facilities. While walking the Cusco streets as dusk approached, I discovered a family pet sleeping by a door, under a rack of handmade bags and tassels. The lighting was best, and I got my shot.
Doggies to the end
The journey ended in the charming seaside beach town of Paracas. The canine hardly opened an eye as I bent to his level and snagged my photo, with the vibrant restaurant in the background.
