Being an animal lover, one thing I noticed in Thailand is how the people live in harmony with animals. Shops, Temples,Beaches and streets had dogs. I was told by an ex-pat living there that Buddhists believe everything has the right to life. Our Guide told us that each day people bring food to the temples for the monks. When the monks have eaten they share the food with the poor and then the animals. I didn't see one skinny dog.
