The Dogs of Cancun, Mexico

I went on a vacation with my mom and dad to Cancun, Mexico last week.

It was actually to a wedding in Xcaret which is near Playa del Carmen.

We stayed at a beautiful villa owned by my dad’s friends’ family ( Thank you Mr. Daniel Marcos.

Anyway, my dad had the idea to take a bunch of pictures of me with every dog we saw on our trip.  We missed a few because we were sometimes in a hurry or in a car and with other people.

But here are the ones I did get:

OK, there are no dogs in this one, but I wanted you to see me having fun on the beach!

So we were having lunch at this cool restaurant on the beach and a really cute dog came to our table.

My dad asked me to walk away from the table to the beach so I could get the beach in the background. Good idea dad!

He was a very well behaved dog!

Here’s a dog that we didn’t get a very good picture of… because we were late to the rehearsal dinner.

Here is a cute little weiner dog and another puppy with their owners who were also very cute Mexican kids 🙂

OK, so these are not REAL dogs but they were neat stacked dog statues in this gift shop. The lady that runs the shop was not going to let us take pictures because there was a sign that said NO PHOTOS.  But my dad convinced her because he told her about my blog. :)  We would have bought the sculpture but we were travelling light.

So we were in this restaurant and my Uncle Ricky noticed a “NO DOGS” sign!

Kinda funny for a restaurant because this is not something you would see in the US but in Mexico a lot of restaurants are open to the street with no air conditioning.  And there are more dogs running around on the streets than here in the US.  I was acting like I was mad that they did not allow my best friends… DOGS! into the restaurant. (again, the pose was my Dad’s idea).

Let me know what you think of my pictures.
