Pariah dog, Bulgaria

Pariah

The Word of the Day on Artwiculate today was pariah which reminded me of this painting on a roadside hoarding in Sofia, Bulgaria. Photo taken in September 2009.
Pariah dog, Bulgaria
In fact, while there were dozens of apparently homeless dogs wandering around Sofia, they all seemed pretty cheerful and well-fed. They were also very trusting of people, which suggests that Bulgarians are in general a dog-loving folk. The situation for cats though was quite the reverse. No pictures of pariah cats though – they were too quick to disappear when I pointed a camera at them.
