They're Back!

My parents are back from vacation. They spent ten days in Argentina. They visited glaciers in the Southern Andes/Patagonia, toured the capital city of Buenos Aires and spent a day in Uruguay. They showed me all of their pictures.

Here are some cute Argentinian perros that they encountered:

felipe the boxer

This is Felipe. My parents met him and his owner near the cemetary where Evita Peron is buried in Buenos Aires.

Pasadores

Most portenos (residents of Buenos Aires) live in apartments. Thus, their perros (dogs) don't have much room to run and play. So they hire dog walkers called pasadores to walk their dogs during the work day. Some pasadores walk up to 20 dogs at once--and they all get along just fine!

No perros!

One day my parents took a ferry across the bay from Buenos Aires to Uruguay.

The ferry boat did not allow dogs :-(

Wow - your parents must have had a neat vacation. I wonder why they didn't take you - obviously there would have been dogs for you to play with. Or at least walk with!

WELCOME BACK CARIO!!!! And Cario's Mommy and Daddy! Boy, did we miss your blogging! Cario, I bet it feels soooooo good to see your mommy and daddy again! I bet you did the boxer dance 10x over when you saw them!

Charlie and Coco

PS- I FINALLY learned to swim while you were gone--without my butt sinking!! Everyone was so proud of me. My mommy posted a video of me on our site. Swimming is fun...I love it now!

Yeah for Cario! Her parents are back. We missed your blogging. Those are nice pictures of doggies but they aren't as pretty as you.

Heya Cairo -

snif snif snif - huh, weird. snif snif snif. Really?. Snif snif. Ah, I see. At any rate, Its good to see you around!

And what's the deal - is it me - or does that 'no animals' sign look a little too much like a 'no boxers' sign? I'd be tempted to let the ferry company know their sign might come across as a little breedist. Know what I mean?

Neat! My mom was in Colombia, South America in June. She saw a Husky almost every day. Most people in the capital city of Bogota also live in apartments, so doggie day care and dog walkers are becoming more and more common.

Felipe is very cute!

Glad to have you home safe and sound! Cool pictures - nice to see all those happy dogs. You know - I do the exact same thing. I always take pictures of the critters.

Guess what? We added three new baby kitties to the family while you were away. And they blog too - just like Cairo! So stop by and say howdy of you're of a mind. The blog is The Catnip Chronicles - starring Kilmouski, Pumpkin and Inky Dinky Do. Everybody stop on by - the more the merrier!

Isabella said...

Wow! Those South American dogs look just like American dogs! Do they bark in Spanish or English?
I'm sure glad you are all home!
Big Wags,
Isabella

It's great when the parents come home. Did you spin? I spin every night when mom gets home. I missed you, Cairo!

IndyPindy said...

Hi Cairo,
Yes, my mom is Colombian. She is not 100% fluent but she speaks pretty good Spanish.
