Yep, dogs 'll do that if you leave food lying around too long. So will some teenagers in my place. The dog usually makes less mess.

Dear 'smcj',

Thanks for the funny picture/story....in Thailand..so many Thai temples allow dogs/cats/chickens to live around ...even feed them with the left-over-almsfood.
