Award Shortlist   

In & Out (Silly Sunday)

By Potra  
I went to a concert of Spanish music from the XV and XVI centuries last Friday at the Universidad Central de Venezuela. After a magnificent performance I was sipping a nice cup of coffee when I saw this female dog running around the building of the Engineering School. I realized that she entered the building so I followed her. She wasn't anywhere in sight, then I saw her inside the Library/Study Hall.

She is very smart, the place has great air conditioning! Wink
Not everybody understand her need for getting in and getting out every 2 minutes, so she stands there until a good soul opens the door for her. It is a delight to watch.

Please look at the whole sequence! Grin

Very interesting Marian, better to be a cool dog than end up a hot dog. Si.

I wondered what the dogs were going in and out for, thought it was
a vets or animal hospital at first. Cool thinking thats for sureÖÖ.GrinGrinGrin

When it's really hot dogs like to find a cool spot. I think these dogs are just very smart.

Yes, the campus has its own dogs, they are not street dogs technically but "university dogs."
I didn't see any inside the classrooms, though. I assume there are boundaries to them.
I noticed this dog first because some student passed by her as she was standing looking around and petted her. So I thought "she knows him, how wonderful." That's why I followed her when she entered the building, I thought she was following the student that was kind to her. All students are kind to her!

Yes, I think she enjoys the attention. The game of following people coming in and out of the Study Hall, being part of the crowd, being like them. She is a sweet dog.

I didn't see them doing it, but I have heard that they not only feed the campus dogs but take them to the vet when they need to go.
