Looking over the edge of the train platform (from March the 4th's shot). They were very curious about the people above them.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Dara from Irvine, United States

good friends ?

@Dara: I think so Dara!

ManuelaR from Hainburg, Germany

Poor things tied up all day... they look friendly though!

@ManuelaR: The white one seemed very friendly. Don't worry, this was right next to their owner's house...

Lorraine from Gatineau, Canada

Can't believe I'm saying that but I hope it's not too hot...there's no shade for them...and the huge bowl is empty...HEY!!! they are beautiful...good catch Daroru

@Lorraine: Lorraine, this was basically the garden of their house. Don't worry, very near their owners! And as for being hot, it was New Year, so luckily it was absolutely freezing cold.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Kenya

Maybe...they get the "show" quite seldom! Maybe...they hope somebody's going to give them some water, it seems the owner forgot this minimun form of caring!

@Japanalia: I don't think they were too neglected (see above,,,). I think people maybe throw the odd bit of food down to them, as we did!

Richard_Irwin from Belper, United Kingdom

But I bet they wouldn't like you stepping on their patch - friendly from a distance I would think

@Richard_Irwin: We saw them down on the ground as well, the white one was very pleased to see us; the beige shiba was a bit more wary!

michelle from peoria, United States

@Evelyn: Thanks Evelyn!

Twelvebit from Victoria, United States

I hate to see dogs chained like that. It makes me want to take a chain to the owners.

14 Mar 2008 1:21am

@Twelvebit: Its pretty common here. This was right by their house though, basically the owners' backyard. Its not seen as anything strange or cruel in Japan for bigger dogs to be chained up outside, and these dogs were quite happy things, not nervous or aggressive, suggesting they weren't being mistreated. However, like you, I personally would not treat my dogs this way...
