A shaggy dog story

My bus stop in Funchal comes with its own dog. He's a little brown fellah with no upper teeth.

The bus drivers adopted him years ago; they put water and food out for him (today there was chicken & noodles in a little plastic dish).

Normally he has a thick shaggy coat, but when I came along this morning he'd been given a short back and sides. Adorable :)

A little girl spent ages gathering leaves and twigs, and set them in a little pile before him. It was a sweet gesture, but he seemed to prefer the chicken noodles...
