I just spent three weeks in Cornwall England and this is what I learned:
Never I have been someplace where people love and honor dogs more. It seems every local has at least one dog, and they walk them everywhere. Almost every business allows dogs in with their people, and if a dog is lost or appears to be in any kind of distress many are concerned and there to help.
Also found it interesting that the dogs keep to their people off leash closely, and even on a beach crowded with dogs romping in the sea there are no fights or skirmishes, only fun and frolic. This visit brought to light the height of the human-animal bond, and I am mightily impressed.
I would venture to guess an artist of pets could make a fine living here!
