In Finland, it's all about the dog. No cats on the backs of bicycles or ferrets on leads here. It's dogs all the way. No messing size-wise either. They are either small or huge, which just makes the pavement 10-yard-bark-offs all the more amusing. Anyway, I'm not an expert on dogs but the ones here are definitely a bit strange looking, especially the small ones. Either their heads are too big for their bodies, or they have tails as long as all of their legs combined. Very odd!
It is my artistic vision that I will eventually produce an upmarket photographic document of the dogs of Lahti, a lavishly appointed publication, equally at home on the coffee table or in the master-library of the koira connoisseur. But for now, here is a picture of a dog on roller skates.
