Homeless in Vancouver: Saturday's dog is parched

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      This dog I saw today didn’t have the slightest interest when I offered him money. Turns out he wasn’t panhandling. He was waiting for his owners to finish up in the restaurant.

      In my defence, he was sitting by the entrance with a little dish in front of him and he was making puppy dog eyes at every passerby.

      What was I supposed to think?

      To keep anyone else from making the same mistake and trying to leave change in his dish, I filled it with water.

      Which is how I found out he was really thirsty.
