Three dogs in Lijiang's Shu He Ancient City at Sifeng Square

Health codes, shmelth codes! The dogs of Lijiang coexist harmoniously with the citizens of the city’s Shu He Ancient City and historic Old Town, popping in and out of both shops and restaurants. Whether they be scrappy strays or thoroughly outfitted homeowners, these dogs are some of the cutest I’ve seen wandering any city.

Here are some photos of the dogs of Lijiang, with a few shots of the kittens that were playing outside my hotel room too (because I like cats).
