I love dogs. I always have and I always will. If I see a dog on the street (except for those really small, ugly ones) I will instinctively reach out to try and pet it. Unfortunately, in Switzerland, dog appreciation isn’t appreciated. If you reach out to pet a dog, the owner will pull the leash and dog away from you and look at you like you might infest their dog with some mutant form of lice (well… come to think of it. Just kidding! I’m clean!) I love my dog at home, despite his barking and food-stealing habits, and I really wish I could just pet a dog every once in a while. I promise I won’t bite.
