"Puppy de Tecolote" ~ Playa el Tecolote, La Paz, Baja, Mexico. The sun crushed down on the nearly-abandoned beach outside of La Paz, but I found friends; seagulls, a pack of wild dogs, and hermit crabs. Then I found him...a rascally white puppy howling on the concrete patio of a closed-up beach bar. He was nearly wild with sharp little puppy teeth and weathered rope around his neck as a makeshift leash. His owner snored in the background, passed out on a plastic lounger.
