24 Janvier: leash-less dogs
We've all noticed the fact that there seem to be a lot of dogs in Paris. A lot of well-trained dogs to be exact. Leashes are hardly ever used and we all were perplexed how these dogs weren't getting run over by cars or chasing people with food or people on bikes or any other dog on the street. However, we witnessed a scene which may have provided some explanation to us how these well-trained dogs exist. As we were walking to the RER station, we saw a woman creating quite a scene yelling at her pug. She was screaming at it, instructing the poor thing to sit down and stay. The dog was terrified, simply staring up at her, completely baffled and confused. Then she picked up the dog from behind it's neck and yanked it up and yelled in its face some more. She didn't hurt it but it's still something you wouldn't see at home because someone would probably call the cops on her. It was kind of funny actually just because she was making such a scene in front of everyone just trying to get her dog to sit down but I guess that's how they get their dogs to listen to them.
