In the AM, we were greeted by smiling black faces. Luckily, I had been up before dawn
for my diarrhea break!. We walked the dogs, and saw two more dogs like the parti male.
While we ate breakfast, more and more people came. Just standing outside the car, talking
and laughing. Women also. Made two more pics of the other dogs with three boys. These
people LOVE to have their pictures made. So after that we left and continued to Aribinda.
The market in Aribinda hadnt really started yet. Lots of the booths were empty -
only found spices and food for sale. Uschi bought some macaroni, biscuits and evaporated
milk and we left. The road after Aribinda was very good. We saw lots of dogs but none of
good quality. After seeing real Azawakhs in Northern Niger, these really must be mongrels.
I dont want to breed with them. I wish that I had taken the first red puppy that we
were given. Even if we didnt see the parents, at least he was in the region with the
real Azawakhs. There were some ugly dogs in North Niger, but they were near the big towns,
not in the remote areas and they were still better than anything weve seen in
