Countryside series I : Abandoned pets

Like many Western Europe countries, France has a lot of pets per inhabitants. So when summer holidays come, thousands are shamelessly abandoned as their owners do not want to take them along. This scene in Bras d’Asse (Alpes-de-Hautes-Provence) reminded me of that fact as the dog stood stoically next to a washing machine ready to be thrown away.  Luckily, in this case, the dog was part of the trip.     (click on picture to enlarge)

  1. I can’t imagine if pet owners abandon their pets, what would happen to the place if they abandon their pets.
