People in Taipei have a very different relationship with their dogs than I’m accustomed to. Part of it is pragmatic: with the density of the city and the reliance on scooters for transportation, I guess it’s inevitable that people will bring their dogs along for the drive. With no one batting an eye. Well, except me.
Even worse are the dog strollers. People actually push their dogs around in what at first glance look like baby strollers–but for dogs! On a good day, I give them the benefit of the doubt and presume it’s because they need to take their dog on the subway. Yet I’ve never seen one on the MRT.
I just don’t think “walking the dog” was meant to be done this way. -_-
