The Litter Dog of Torcello, Venice, Italy

Scroll down to content


Now I did wonder why I never saw very much litter around Venice and the neighbouring islands……now I know why, they have litter dogs 🙂  No not really, if you get up at the crack of dawn, you will see men with what I call broomsticks type brushes, sweeping the squares and alleyways, every single morning, before all the tourists arrive.  This little dog was on the island of Torcello, just look at the wonderful collar, someone loves him dearly, and they have taught him to pick up rubbish.  Toffee does that, but only because he wants to chew it up and make even more rubbish 🙂
