Cheryl from Texas, United States

interesting looking place with all those ropes. The cat looks ready to attack the sleeping dog....I love it!

Ian from A nice, tranquil leafy place, United Kingdom

So .... all the dogs are chained to that one trolley, and the little kitty is their babysitter? :) Whatever the story, it's an awesome shot.

@Ian: The trolley was loaded with boxes... filled with cats! There was only one dog, I think he must be their guardian (hence my title). It was quite a sight. None of the animals seemed phased by passers-by looking at them or stroking them. The owner was nowhere to be seen!

Alphons from Kaatsheuvel, Netherlands

Nice report in his allday environment.

Richard_Irwin from Belper, United Kingdom

If that was my dog, that cat would get no peace, but this sweet dog really is having a nice lie down, and the cat looks envious.

10 Feb 2009 9:40pm

@Richard_Irwin: They were all so calm Richard...

well captured street scene. It almost appears that the cat as well as the pup is tied up.
