Many dogs in Barrow are considered working and are tied to a post in the front yard. Unsurprisingly, I had a problem with that (although we did meet a lot of people who had inside dogs that slept on their beds!) I never saw a dog chained out front that looked hungry, but some of the dogs looked pretty miserable. I had been warned by my coworkers, who know how dog-crazy I am, not to pet the chained dogs! I would take different walking routes sometimes to see dogs that I knew (either the owner told me or it was a puppy) that I could approach. Here are two of my favorites, as you can see they absolutely love the attention.
