Niger: Mostly good dogs to the north. Especially Abarey
and Meriza area. Would have given most anything to have been able to bring out the blue
brindle pup or the adult black male. The people seem less prosperous than in Burkina.
Sometimes more proud, others less. The country is very dirty and trashy.
Mostly the people on the dirt tracks are friendly, near towns everyone wants
cadeau and that is a bit of pain after awhile. I found I enjoyed Niger more
perhaps because the quality of dogs was better and I enjoyed seeing so many Targi and
Wodaabe people, especially in Meriza. Interesting thought on the dogs in Niger. The real
Azawakhs were found with the women mostly. Rarely saw them with men, children or animals.
You mostly see them laying in the back of tents. As you go south and the type
deteriorates, you find them more with men and children. I wonder why? Are the pure ones
inherently more sensitive and drawn to women? Or perhaps more laid back and not enjoying
the more active environment of the men and children? The Senjis and Sighthound type mix
dogs seem to enjoy the kids more - perhaps more active temperament type?
